I am so excited to share with you this delicious menu for the Christmas festivities! I have been testing the recipes last weekend, and totally got into a Christmas mood. The aroma that filled my kitchen just immediately made it all so festive! This is a menu suggestion for a Christmas dinner without any animal products. If you are plant-based, vegan or vegetarian, than this is just right for you. If you are a meat eater, you would still want to try the recipes I’m about to share, because they taste delicious and will offer you an exciting new twists to your favourite dishes. You can also just prepare these meals for any time during the Christmas holidays, you really shouldn’t miss on the opportunity to tickle your tastebuds with new flavours and combinations!
I have created this Christmas menu in collaboration with Delhaize Supermarket, who have provided me with the ingredients. One of the requirements of this collaboration was that the budget for the ingredients doesn’t exceed 75 EUR. Well, I was well within this budget. Another way to show that eating healthy, whole foods doesn’t have to cost a lot of money! 😉
I will split the menu in a few posts, otherwise this will become way too long. But I will link all the recipes here below, as soon as they are live on the blog.
So let’s not waste any more time and get right into the recipes for this Christmas menu!
Below you will find the recipe for the Roasted Brussel Sprouts With Caramelised Onions And Mustard.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts With Caramelised Onions And Mustard
Delicious side dish for the winter months.
- 750gr brussel sprouts
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp mustard
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 tbsp honey (or maple syrup, if you don’t consume honey)

1. Wash the Brussel sprouts and place them in a pan with boiling water. Boil for about 2 minutes.
2. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees.
3. Rinse the water and dry the Sprouts with kitchen towel. Place them in a baking tray.
4. Heat up a pan with some olive oil. Add the chopped onion and garlic. Sauté until they become fragrant and translucent. Add 1 tsp maple syrup and leave on the heat for another minute or so. Once the onions have become a bit sticky but not dry, turn off the heat.
5. Add the caramelised onions to the tray with the Brussel sprouts. Add the remaining olive oil, mustard, smoked paprika, honey, salt and pepper.
6. Mix well until all Brussel sprouts are well coated.
