20 Minute Chorizo and Brussel Sprout Weeknight Dinner Bowl – a quick and easy dinner for those nights when you have nothing prepared! (Whole30/Paleo/Dairy-Free)
It doesn’t get any easier than this, you guys!
This recipe was really just born out of me not knowing what to make for dinner one night. I wanted something really simple, quick, no-fuss and Whole30.
I knew I had some Whole30 compliant chorizo in the freezer and a bag of Brussel sprouts in my crisper – I thought they would taste pretty darn good together so I just threw them together on a baking sheet and tossed it in the oven (I even put the chorizo in the oven still frozen…). About 15 minutes later, the spiciness of the chorizo had melted into the Brussel sprouts and it was pure deliciousness. (For reference, I use the Garrett Valley brand of chorizo and I get it at my local co-op in the frozen section).
I made it again a couple days later for my husband, but this time I added a fried egg and some avocado (for some healthy fat) – it was a winner!
You can also make a poached egg, like it did in the picture! I have a tutorial here on how I poach my eggs!
Can’t wait for you guys to make this and put your own spin on it!
ALSO – fyi – I did a fun behind the scenes photo shoot for this in the Stories on my Instagram account! I saved it to my Highlights (“BTS #2”) if you want to see my process 🙂
