Healthy Recipe: Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Butternut Squash

Okay, you guys. I cannot overstate my enthusiasm for this recipe. It is SO good for you (superfoods!) and SO tasty. It causes me to make my “THIS FOOD GOES HERE” face:

Not my most attractive expression, but one I make often.

 

I was so happy that I’d made an entire roasting pan of this stuff, because even after we ate enormous servings there was still a ton of leftovers (that I was ridiculously eager to get home to and eat the next day).

 

It’s vegan but still incredibly satisfying. It’s flavorful and hearty and perfect for fall… though I see myself being willing to put my oven on 400 even in the dead of summer for this.

Preheat oven to 400F. Spread the Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, cranberries, apple, & onions on a large rimmed baking sheet. In a small bowl mix oil, vinegar, and curry powder together.
