Brussel Sprouts with Toasted Pecans and Cranberries

brussel-sprouts-pecan-cranberries-2

Brussel sprouts have become one of my favorite veggies over the years. They provide such a wonderful texture and their flavor lends themselves to many different flavor profiles. Joining the brussel sprouts with some cranberries and onions provides a tasty sweetness and the toasted pecans add a satisfying smoky crunch.

This recipe can be made as a side dish which is a great addition to many meals and also for potlucks. Due to the wonderful combination of ingredients, this dish can also be the entire meal (just made this for my dinner tonight!). Adding quinoa can be a great way to make the meal more substantial and provide some healthy whole grains, fiber and plant-based protein.
