Roasted Brussels Spouts with Pears and Cranberries
Roasted Brussels Spouts with Pears, Cranberries, and a Honey glaze! These are the best recipe I’ve ever had for brussels sprouts!
Are you a brussels fan? Even if you aren’t, you HAVE to try these caramelized brussels spouts! They are the BEST and my family (who hates brussels) loved these! The caramelized pears and cranberries added the best flavor! Seriously… something divine happens when you roast pears. I’m thinking I need to make a batch of just roasted pears next. Seriously… heaven right there!
These are the perfect side dish for fall and winter. They also would make a great addition to any holiday dinner. They are just screaming Christmas dinner with the red and green colors, don’t you think?
To make these, I like to start by cutting off the ends of the brussels and then cutting them in half.
Then I toss them with the pears and onions. Drizzle in a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Then it’s time to roast! Ah, seriously roasted vegetables are my FAVORITE!
Once they’re out of the oven, you’re going to squeeze fresh lime (or lemon) juice over the top and drizzle honey over the top. YUM!
Seriously… I could eat the entire pan. They are that good!
I found this recipe in the new book: The Seasoned Life by Ayesha Curry. Ayesha says the sweetness of the pear, the tartness of the dried cranberries and the caramelized edges of the brussels sprouts make for smiling faces. I have to agree. I even turned my husband on to these who usually won’t touch brussels.
