Brussels Sprouts With Balsamic and Cranberries

Here’s a deep-flavored vegetable side to brighten up any holiday table: roasted Brussels sprouts in a honey-balsamic glaze, sprinkled with cranberries for a burst of color and just a little extra tang. The rich reds and greens will look beautiful on any table, and in this case you really can judge the book by its cover: it tastes as good as it looks.

This is also a perfect recipe to make in the late fall, when Brussels sprouts are still around at the farmers’ market. If you’ve never really been a Brussels Sprouts person, get some fresh (still on the stalk if you can find them) and try roasting them like this: it might just convert you!

This recipe would go just fine with the Thanksgiving turkey, but it would also be perfect with ham or a roast chicken for a slightly less fancy occasion. It’s autoimmune-friendly and almost vegan (depending on whether your vegan friends eat honey or not), so it’s a great way to put something on the table that everyone can enjoy.
