Note: The recipe serves six.
2 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts
¼ cup olive oil
¾ cup sliced almonds
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Place rack in the center and upper third of the oven. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
To prepare the Brussels sprouts, trim the bottom off each sprout and slice in half or in quarters and place sprouts on two rimmed baking sheets. Drizzle with olive oil and sliced almonds. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in the oven.
Roast Brussels sprouts until tender and golden brown, about 35-40 minutes, removing pans once or twice during baking to stir and toss the Brussels sprouts.
Transfer sprouts to a large bowl and toss with pomegranate seeds. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve warm.
