Your New Favorite Side Dish ~ Pistachio Date Brussels Sprouts
Fall’s got us feelin’ like experimenting with all the delish seasonal veggies! The other night Bobby and I were making dinner and we came up with the best new Brussels sprouts recipe! We paired Brussels with dates and pistachios for some added sweetness and crunch. We served it with grilled chicken first and then salmon the next night! It’s also amazing with a veggie burger! Plus, Brussels sprouts are packed with fiber to keep you satiated and contain compounds called glucosinolates that detox your beautiful bod!
We know you’re going to love this recipe just as much as we do! Bobby has been requesting it every night so it’s TIU husband approved too ;)
