Whatever you do this Thanksgiving, don’t spoil your spread with underdressed vegetables.
Sure, well-dressed produce — such as green beans adorned with bacon or carrots swimming in butter — are less healthy than those that are simply steamed and seasoned. But they also taste a heck of a lot better. And since this is Thanksgiving, why not live a little?
To get you in the mood, we dressed our roasted Brussels sprouts with Gruyere cheese, pumpkin seeds and dates. Sweet, cheesy, caramelized deliciousness.
