Finding The Fit Girl Inside Me: Sweet Balsamic Brussel Sprouts.  Clean Eating Thanksgiving and Christmas Side Dish
Clean Eating Side Dish

This is a fantastic, easy to make side dish that I love to throw together for my table at Thanksgiving. Not only is it full of flavor but it is colorful and looks fantastic on a platter.

There are many ways you can prepare the Brussels Sprouts.  You can keep them whole, cut them in half, or quarter them, depending on your preference.  I quartered this batch because I was short on time and wanted them to cook and brown faster.

Ingredients:
2- 32oz bags of Brussels Sprouts
1/2 white onion sliced into thin strips
1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup Organic Honey
1 cup Craisins

Directions:
1.) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2.) Peel and prepare the Brussels Sprouts, and rinse. Chop into quarters.
3.) Spray cookie sheet with olive oil.
4.) Coat Brussels Sprouts and onions with olive oil and evenly spread on the cookie sheet.
5.) Cook for 30-40 min stirring every 10-15 minutes.
6.) Add Craisins with 5-10 min remaining.
7.) Place on platter, or decorative pie plate and drizzle with Balsamic Glaze.

Balsamic Glaze:
1.) Whisk balsamic vinegar and honey together.
2.) Pour desired amount over Brussels Sprouts and serve warm.
