Baked Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries 

Print¬†Friendly 

Description:
This red and green side dish is the perfect accompaniment to your Christmas dinner.
Brussels sprouts are available year round; however, they are at their best from autumn through early spring when they are at the peak of their growing season. Cooking methods include boiling, steaming and roasting. To ensure even cooking throughout, buds of a similar size are usually chosen. Some cooks will cut a cross in center of the stem to aid the penetration. Whatever cooking method is employed, overcooking is avoided.
Plant phytonutrients found in Brussels sprouts enhance the activity of the body's natural defense systems to protect against disease, including cancer.


Ingredients:
1 pound Brussels sprouts, steamed
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup(s) dried cranberries


Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Coat an 8 X 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray, preferably olive oil.

Place Brussels sprouts in bottom of prepared pan. (Note: If you can't find fresh Brussels sprouts, use frozen ones that have been thawed; just decrease the cooking time below by about 10 to 15 minutes.)

Combine maple syrup, oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl; pour over Brussels sprouts.

Stir in cranberries and bake, covered, until tender and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.

Wellness Tip
What Affects Iron Absorption?
Iron supplementation can be beneficial for some people who are at risk of deficiency such as pregnant women, female athletes or women with heavy menstrual cycles. To get the most out of iron supplements, avoid taking them with coffee, tea or milk. These beverages contain substances that can inhibit the absorption of iron. Wait 90 minutes or more to drink coffee, tea or milk, after taking iron. Vitamin C and meat proteins can improve iron absorption. Check with your physician before adding an iron supplement to your diet.
