Alrighty, let’s get cooking!

Maple Glazed Sweet Potato & Brussel Salad

Maple Glazed Spiralized Salad

Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year. I love seeing the changes in nature, watching the puffs of steam leave my coffee mug in the crisp air, hearing the crunch of falling leaves under my boots, and tasting the comforting & warm flavors of the season. Maple & sweet potato has to be one of my favorite combinations. Today we’re adding the pungent juxtaposition of Brussel sprouts, and brightening the mix with some sticky, sweet cranberries.

If you love recipes with cranberries, I know you love this Orange Cranberry Quinoa Salad

OK, let’s be honest here for a minute. We all love the flavors of fall, but sometimes they’re not so kind to our waistlines. I’m not a big fan of having a sweater bod, ya feel? I love rich foods as much as the next person, but sometimes we all still crave something, light, fresh & veggie packed. If you ask me, this dish is the perfect compromise.

Spiralized salads are one of the easiest and most fun ways to enjoy your veggies, and I know we’re all racking our brains for new ways to repurpose old favorites! The maple vinaigrette pairs with the cranberries to sweeten the mix, but don’t you go thinking we forgot about that pecan crunch.

Roasted Brussel Maple Fall Salad

While the sprouts roast, wash, dry & peel those sweet potatoes. Pierce them a few times with a fork, wrap in a paper towel and microwave them for 1 min & 30 secs. This will soften them a bit before spiralizing.

Next, grab your taters & spiralize away. Measure out your cranberries, pecans, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar & Dijon mustard. Heat a large pan on medium & add the other tbsp of olive oil.

Spiralized Sweet Potato Pecan & Maple Salad

When the oil is heated, add the spiralized SP noodles, and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the apple cider vinegar and allow it to steam for a minute. By now your Brussels should be done, so add them to the noodle pan along with the cranberries and pecans. Toss this & pour in the maple syrup & mustard. Mix everything together well for another minute and remove this from the heat.

This dish can be eaten hot or cold & keeps really well in the fridge. I actually portioned mine out into servings, topped with grilled chicken & ate for a quick grab and go lunch! I also do this with my Lemon Garlic Zucchini Noodles. You day gets so much better when you know you have a fantastic lunch waiting for you!
