Brussel Sprouts with Cranberries

I know what you thought when you saw “Brussel Sprouts”, but I promise these are really good. I’ve never been a big fan of brussel sprouts, however I was determined to find a way to like them since they are so good for you. I think I accomplished that with this dish. The key to this is to get them carmelized, so that the natural sugars come out, and make them yummy.  My husband said to me, “Who would think I actually would ask you to make brussel sprouts.” That was a huge moment, because he didn’t really like brussel sprouts either.  Like most things, I try to make them easy, so anyone could make them. Give them a try.

  • 16 oz brussel sprouts, quartered
  • 1 c fresh cranberries
  • 2 – 3 tbsp vegetable broth to toss the sprouts and berries
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl combine sprouts, cranberries, and seasoning. Toss to coat ingredients well. Spread out brussel sprouts and cranberries on sheet pan. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes, stirring half way through. They will be done when they are fork tender. The cranberries will have burst and shrunk in size, That is a good thing. Drizzle with maple syrup and stir. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
