Score!!! This recipe is so awesome. I have committed to bringing a few vegan side dishes and a vegan main dish to one of our Thanksgiving gatherings this year. I wanted to experiment with some recipes I’ve never made before. I love roasted Brussels sprouts and wanted to incorporate some fall flavors. So, I roasted up some Brussels, topped them with some cranberries and pecans and topped it off with a maple balsamic glaze reminiscent of the maple balsamic vinaigrette that I use on my Fall Harvest Salad. It’s a winner for sure! Hope you enjoy.
