Roasted Butternut Squash and Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate — a dish highlighting some of fall’s best veggies, so perfectly flavorful and filling it can serve a main dish!
I don’t know about you, but I can certainly make a meal out of vegetables. In fact, I usually do. I’m perfectly content with a bowl full of roasted Brussels sprouts, a colorful carrot salad, or baked eggplant and tomato stacks. #SundaySupper is celebrating vegetables today — I couldn’t be more excited for our theme this week, Veggies as a Main Dish, because well, veggies usually are my main dish!
With Thanksgiving behind us and the holiday season under way, food is on all of our minds, especially if you are in charge of hosting dinner parties for your friends and family. Veggies are easy to incorporate into side dishes and appetizers — but as the main dish? Many people often overlook all the brilliant and delicious ways you can highlight vegetables in every course, not just as an accompaniment to meat, poultry, or seafood. I sometimes find that a veggie side can also play the part of a main entree if you include the right ingredients.
Take this Roasted Butternut Squash and Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate — soft, delicate butternut squash is paired with hearty Brussels and given texture and crunch from sweet and tart pomegranate seeds. We’ve also drizzled in some pomegranate glaze — and, for extra flavor, I sprinkled a little bit of Intensity Academy’s Honey Hype (one of my favorite products I brought home from last summer’s #FWCon). I wanted this dish to be as bright and colorful as it is flavorful, so I roasted up some red cabbage as well. I originally wanted to use radicchio, but came across the cabbage first. I’ve never roasted red cabbage before and wanted to give it a shot. Who knew it would be so delicious?! It’s still slightly crisp, but also a bit wilted. As with any vegetable, roasting brings out its inner sweetness — a perfect marriage to the other ingredients in the dish.
Although I brought my Roasted Butternut Squash and Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate to Thanksgiving dinner as a side dish (that everyone loved), I could easily polish off a bowl of this on its own for lunch or dinner.
