Roasted Chilli and Turmeric Brussel Sprouts

I have been trying to add more turmeric to our dishes (due to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties amongst so many other benefits) and thought I would try to spice up some brussel sprouts and boy this combination tasted so good! Roasted in the oven with some ghee, it makes the perfect side veggie dish.
