Flavored with ginger and garlic, this Brussels Sprouts Kale Sauté with Cranberries & Walnuts is a nutritious addition to your holiday table.
Like a lot of y’all, one of our Christmas traditions is decorating a gingerbread house.
There are those rare times when we bake up our own gingerbread house – walls and roof and all.
Well, at least I place cut out gingerbread walls, roofs, and doors into the oven. What comes out of the oven has no resemblance to walls, roofs or doors. This means we use way too much royal icing trying to assemble these discombobulated pieces together ( btw, I’m not saying extra icing is a bad thing )
Most times though, we get a store bought gingerbread house with all the extras. With these store bought ones, the walls, roofs and doors fit perfectly. And, they last as a centerpiece a lot longer as neither my daughter or I find them tasty enough to nibble on.
However, this year store bought Christmas house has new meaning for our taste-buds. This year we plan on grabbing an Oreo Holiday Chocolate Cookie House!
Have you seen these yet? Better yet, have you tried one?
If so please do share!
As an Oreo fan – I CANNOT wait!
And, I’m hoping they include extra Oreo creme as Oreo creme to me is like … sun is to grass…
Or, frosting to cake…
Or, cream cheese to cheesecake… yes, I do love my desserts!
I’m also a huge fan of balance.
So I have to balance out my love for desserts with healthy, nutritious, foods – especially around the holiday season.
And that’s where this Brussels Sprouts Kale Sauté with Cranberries & Walnuts comes in.
I need sides like this Brussels Sprouts Kale Sauté with Cranberries & Walnuts or this Brussels Sprouts and Apple Salad on my holiday table.
This is one of my favorite side dishes. It is such a pleasing mix of flavor and texture.
There’s ever so slightly sweet and smoky caramelized onions, fresh garlic and fresh ginger along with tart and sweet cranberries enhancing the flavor of the Brussels Sprouts and kale.
And there’s those soft caramelized onions, juicy cranberries and hard walnuts to complement that sautéed kale and Brussels Sprouts.
This Brussels Sprouts Kale Sauté is not just a wholesome side dish but it is so tasty too. And I’m so thrilled to say am not the only one who thinks so because I’ve seen kids of friends of mine head to the table for second servings of this sauté.
Today I am serving this Brussels Sprouts Kale Sauté with Cranberries & Walnuts at a Virtual Friendsgiving Potluck hosted by Julie.
Y’all have got to check out the rest of the delicious dishes by my fellow bloggers at this Virtual Friendsgiving Potluck… I gotta say, scrolling through this list has me wishing this was an in-person potluck instead!
