Tips and Techniques
- To save time, look for already prepped Brussels sprouts and butternut squash cubes in the produce section of your grocery store.
- For best results, use fresh butternut squash and Brussels sprouts.
- Can fresh cranberries be used instead of dried? Yes! Use 1 Cup and roast them with the butternut squash and Brussels. Because fresh cranberries are not as sweet, you may want to stir in an extra Tablespoon of maple syrup after they are done cooking.
- Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator and use within 3-4 days.
