Ingredients

  • 1 pound brussels sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • sea salt an cracked black pepper

The Dressing:

  • 1 tbsp coconut or olive oil
  • 1 medium shallot. minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • cup orange juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Toppings:

  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup walnuts, chopped, toasted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450˚F and place the oven rack in the middle position. Line a large baking sheet with foil and set aside. 
  • Trim the stems of the Brussels sprouts and peel away the outer leaves. Using the food processor with the slicing attachment, shave the Brussels sprouts 3-5 at a time until they are all sliced into a slaw. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, toss the shaved sprouts with olive oil. Spread them out on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper (I use around ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper)
  • Roast the Brussels sprouts in your preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through. Once the edges have browned all the way across the top, it's time to turn, then duplicate the timing for the other side. 
  • While the sprouts cook, get your dressing made: heat the oil over medium heat until melted and shimmering. Add the shallot and garlic and sauce around a minute until they are fragrant. 
  • Add the remaining dressing ingredients (orange juice, honey, and vinegar) to the pan and simmer for around 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. 
  • When the sprouts have finished cooking, remove the oven to a large serving bowl and toss with the cranberries and dressing. Top with walnuts and serve warm. 

Notes

If you're wanting to eliminate any added sugars, consider adding a little zest from the orange and a touch more orange juice instead of honey and look for unsweetened dried cranberries like these
