Bump Up Your Brussels Sprouts
Author: Coach Nancy
No ordinary Brussels Sprouts these! Colorful and tasty, the sweetness of the butternut squash and tart of the cranberries make this dish a great blend of fall flavors. You will love the crunch of the pecans too!
Ingredients
  • 3 cups Brussels Sprouts
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 pound Butternut Squash
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 cups Pecan Halves
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (no sugar added)
Instructions
  1. Peel, seed and cut the butternut squash into 1″ cubes, then toss with 2 Tbsp olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
  2. Trim the ends of the Brussels sprouts, and remove any yellow leaves.
  3. Toss the sprouts with 3 Tbsp olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Roast the squash and Brussels sprouts on separate baking sheets for 25-30 minutes in a 400 degree oven. For even browning, turn over for the last 10 minutes.
  5. When the squash and sprouts are done, combine them with the pecans and dried cranberries and gently mix.
