Brussels Sprout, Sweet Potato and Chickpea Sheet Pan Dinner

Jump to Recipe

Hello friends!
Whew. December, am I right? Life is crazy. Or rather will be. I feel it coming!
There is so much going on, I am trying to not let if affect my mood, but I tend to get really anxious, really fast when things pop up unexpectedly. Like lash out in anger anxious (I am not proud of this). I wish I could hide under a pillow, but I keep going, because the pillow situation won’t really help in the end.
SO that is why I LOVE – no I NEED – an easy sheet pan dinner to get me through those busy anxious days. Because prep time – well that is in short supply!

The Sheet Pan Dinner Solutions
I am in love with my sheet pan right now. One pan and easy peasy, we are done with dinner! There are so many combinations for sheet pan dinners and roasted vegetables in the wintertime – well that is comfort food made healthy. (plus, in Michigan anytime I can add some extra warmth to the house with the oven on, count me in!)
I think you could seriously, take any of our grilling recipes and turn it into a sheet pan dinner. You can just imagine that it is summertime…(OK that may be a stretch in the depth of wintertime. But you get my point.
Sheet pan dinners are easy, customizable and a great dinner solution for busy weeknights.

This Sheet Pan Dinner
Will fill you up with it’s combination of brussels sprout, sweet potato, portobello mushroom, red onion, and chickpeas. Those veggies are tossed with a smokey, sweet marinade that gives them amazing taste!
Topped with some creamy avocado and lime, this dinner has amazing taste.

The Marinade
Makes this sheet pan dinner outstanding! I marinated my brussels sprout, mushroom and red onion in the marinade for 30 minutes. This gave me time to go ahead and chop up my sweet potato, rinse my can of chickpeas and prep my pan for the oven.
The marinade is super easy with liquid smoke, maple syrup, amino acids and minced garlic. Liquid smoke is found in the same aisle along with your BBQ sauces at the grocery store. It is a fantastic way to give your dishes a ‘smokey’ taste.
