This recipe is quick, easy and extremely delicious. I can eat an entire bowl by myself! It makes for a great side dish at dinner, especially thanksgiving. The sweetness of the pear, the tartness of the dried cranberries and the richness of the brussels make for smiling faces and full bellies. I hope you like this recipe as much as my family does. Enjoy!

Ingredients

12oz of Brussels Sprouts (approx 12-15)

1 Pear

1 Lemon Wedge

1 Tbs Honey

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 Tbs Olive Oil

Handful of chopped Onion

Handful of Dried Cranberries

Directions

Preheat oven to 450. Wash, dry and halve all of your brussels sprouts  and slice the pear. Place them in a baking dish along with the onion. Coat with a tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake for about 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Next, Squeeze the lemon wedge all over the pan and drizzle with honey. Lastly, toss in the dried cranberries, mix everything together and serve! I promise this dish will not disappoint.

  1. May I suggest, much like cooking.com – the recipes be printable in 3 by 5 card format? Otherwise, two to three pages of paper gets printed the way you have the website set up now.
    Thanks!

    Also – why not start a drop-down tab or side tab for Ayesha’s Cooking Book, etc.

  2. This sounds like a great combo, and very healthy. Look forward to trying it. I love brussels sprouts and always roast them w/olive oil. I’ve been roasting a lot of my veggies lately (broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, etc.) I love the flavor it gives.
    Another way I do brussels sprouts is shave them (in food processor), saute in olive oil, adding a little chicken broth after they brown.
    Are you having Thanksgiving at your new home or in Charlotte?

  3. This recipe is delicious! I had just bought a bag of brussels sprouts at Costco the day you posted your recipe. I doubled the recipe because I have 2 teenage boys. It was a hit! My husband said that it was so good it almost tasted like dessert! Plus, it was really pretty and looked like fall with the warm yellow pears and the red of the cranberries. I am going to fix this for our Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you!

  4. Ayesha, nice looking blog and recipe, I’ll definitely try it. TMI time – love brussels, but gas man…hoping the currants and lemon do the trick!

  5. I am trying to reduce the consumption of meat as much as possible and this dish is perfect for me! I cooked it for last night and it was delicious! Even my friend, who hates brussel sprouts, loved it. Thank you Ayesha !!
