It is officially fall which means fun, fall-inspired recipes. You already know that I love pumpkin spice everything and sweet, baked goods. All of that is wonderful, but I love finding ways to spice up my veggies during this time of year. You know, to try to make up for any slacker behavior during the cooler months and holiday season. I told you all before about my love affair with Brussels sprouts AFTER becoming an adult. As a kid, my Mom could not pay me to eat them, but I’m so in love with them now!
There’s just something about Roasted Brussels Sprouts that just rocks my world! They go so well with a variety of combinations. I tried cranberries with them last year and FELL-IN-LOVE! You know I had to incorporate them into a new recipe for the season.
After discovering Truvia® Nectar, I really wanted to try it out with this rad combo: Honey Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries, Pecans, & Gorgonzola. If you haven’t heard of Truvia® Nectar, it’s because it’s the NEWEST product to the Truvia® line! It’s a natural stevia-honey blend sweetener that allows you to enjoy the sweetness of honey with 50% fewer calories than sugar. Yes, please!
You can pretty much use nectar wherever you would use honey. Seriously! There’s a party going on right here—and with this combo, you can’t eat just one. They are so addictive!
Let’s get to the Recipeeee!
