This recipe is super simple, totally foolproof, very healthy and delicous! Perfect combination, right?!
It’s my original recipe for a sweet potato brussel sprouts casserole the special way.
I like to just look into the fridge, see what I can find there and cook something out of that. In the time before Thanksgiving I have a lot of brussels sprouts, cranberries and sweet potatoes lying around. I usually improvise on the recipe, testing, smelling and tasting in the end. Whatever turns out great I share with you. So this was what I came up with today, in my midday break at home, precooking for the evening when I knew I was coming home late.
Essence of the story: The recipe is 100% original and suitable for anytime you have a few minutes on your hands the day before to make the food ahead for the next busy day where you’ll only have to pop it into the oven for 25 minutes, work out in the meantime and then enjoy your meal!
Or you can make it while stuffing your turkey or making pumpkin pie..whatever you have planned for the big feast tomorrow!
Definitely write in the comments below what you have planned or did do (if you’re reading this later)! Sadly Thanksgiving is a regular work day here in Germany so I’ll be busy the whole day, but going out to the theater in the evening!
I hope you’ll have an amazing day and feast! Enjoy your time and now let’s get to this recipe, shall we!?
What you’ll need
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 1 parsnip
- 1 onion
- 200 grams brussels sprouts
- (vegan) grated cheese
- 1/2 cup cranberries
- salt, pepper
- 3 cloves
Start with skimming and cutting your sweet potatoes into slices. Place them into a heat resistant dish and bake or grill them for 10 minutes, you can add a drop of oil if you want. In the meantime, cut the rest of the vegetables. Layer them onto the sweet potatoes, with the cranberries, mixing in the cloves as well and seasoning with salt and pepper.
Add a bit of water to the bottom of the dish so nothing burns and finish by sprinkling the cheese on top.
Now bake the whole thing for about 20 minutes. You want the cheese to be light brown.
Take out and enjoy!
