Well, not really, but kinda.

I wanted to post the PERFECT Skinny Confidential recipe for you guys.

But I didn’t want to make skinny stuffing or nasty gravy ( sorry, not a fan ).

So alllllll day long I was OCD-ing on WTF to post {?!?!}.

At around 6 pm I decided to text my über-healthy friend, Carly.

And obviously she had the best recipe ever. Because, duh.

I mean, seriously— cinnamon/cider Brussels sprouts?

Heaven.

The easiest directions ever ( makes four servings ): in a large pan over medium heat, heat oil. Cook Brusssels sprouts ( cut side down ), flipping once until browned for ten to twelve minutes. Add apple & pear; cook until soft for five minutes. Add cider & cinnamon; simmer, stirring, until all liquid cooks away.

Oh, & NBD: a serving offers about 3/4 of your daily need for Vitamin C.

I made these today & will def be whipping ‘um up tomorrow for TG.

So good it hurts.

Happy Thanksgiving-eve!

    HOLY COW!! These sound INSANE. I’m literally fully addicted to brussel sprouts (weird? I dunno…my favorite food is kale. I’m a freak.) but I usually just toss them in the oven with some sea salt and olive oil. I’m a nut for sweet/savory combos and this is right up my alley…especially for my pescatarian/dairy free/gluten free/soy free contributions to my fiance’s fam’s T-giving tomorrow :)

    Love this! Brussels sprouts always have kind of a sweet taste to them when they caramelized anyway

    omg. These look amazing. I’ve been on a huge brussels sprouts kick lately but have mostly just been cooking them with a little garlic and spice. I will certainly be trying this recipe soon. thanks!

    Vegetables such as sprouts were a big part of my Diet that busted my bad cholesterol. It’s great to see another exciting vege recipe!
