Fall is definitely my favorite season, not just because of the beautiful weather but because all my favorite foods are coming back in season. I love incorporating seasonal and local produce into my recipes, and this is one hundred percent the best time to do that with such a wide variety available. This particular recipe has become a fan favorite in my family and one that everyone looks forward to, vegetable lover or not. Brussels sprouts are one of those controversial vegetables that most people either love or hate, but I think it all depends on how you prepare them. This recipe is one of those ways to turn a hater into a lover!
For this recipe think the most perfectly crispy brussels sprouts paired with a sweet and savory mix of winter squash, apples and plenty of seasonal aromatics that take the dish to a whole new level. My mouth is watering just thinking about how delicious it is! The best part about this dish is that you need fewer than 10 ingredients and it’s pretty low maintenance, so it’s perfect for a quick weeknight meal as well as batch cooked for a healthy addition to Thanksgiving dinner. Ever since the winter squash display has hit the floor in Trader Joe’s this month, this recipe has been on repeat in my house. Even if you are hesitant about brussels sprouts, try this one out! It has changed many opinions so far!
