Oct 26, 2019

Hi fam! This recipe is perfect for Thanksgiving or #Friendsgiving! Contribute this side dish if you want to impress the guests and host... Oh and trust us, this recipe looks much more complicated than it actually is in real life.

 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • 3 cups Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed

  • Olive oil

  • Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

  • 1 medium-sized butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed into 1-inch cubes

  • 1-2 tbsps of honey or maple syrup

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 cups of raw pecan halves

  • 1 cup of raisins OR dried cranberries (I used raisins!)

 

 

WHAT YOU'LL DO

ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUTS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  2. Line a baking sheet with foil. Grease the foil with tablespoon of olive oil.

  3. Trim the ends the brussel sprouts, and then slice all of them in half.

  4. In a medium bowl, toss the Brussels sprouts, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and salt.

  5. Place onto a foil-lined baking sheet and roast in the oven at 400 F for about 20-25 minutes.

  6. Turn the brussels over during the last 5-10 minutes of roasting to get both sides crispy! You can even turn your broiler on HIGH for the last 5 minutes.

 

ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  2. Same as above: lightly grease a new foil-lined baking sheet with olive oil.

  3. Peal the butternut squash exterior with a peeler.

  4. Dice the squash into cubes. (PRO TIP: If you save your seeds, you can roast them on your own as a snack!)

  5. In a bowl, combine cubed butternut squash, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tbsp of honey, and cinnamon. Toss and mix to perfection.

  6. Place butternut squash in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning once half-way through baking until softened (but not too soft!)

 

IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH SPACE AND YOUR OVEN ALLOWS: You can roast both the butternut squash and Brussels on 2 separate baking sheets at the same time.

 

PUT THIS SHIZZZZZZ TOGETHER:

  1. In a LARGE bowl, combine roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted butternut squash, pecans, and raisins.

  2. Toss until mixed well!

  3. If you desire more sweetness, add 1-2 tsp more honey.

  4. Enjoy!!!!!
