Vegetarian Brussels Sprout Bake with Parmesan & Pomegranates

Vegetarian Brussels Sprout Bake with Parmesan & Pomegranates is the perfect side or main for Thanksgiving!

Day 2.

Here we go.

What did you think of the Three Make Ahead Dips? I am obsessed with each one because they all provide a different flavor and texture. My hope for these dips was to provide a little somethin’, somethin’ to your Thanksgiving situation besides your basic cheese and meat board. Plus, let’s be real making these ahead is the best part!

Okay, for day two I heard you guys needed more vegetarian dishes. I wanted to make a side that could still hold its own as a main too. Again my goal for this week was to keep things simple and delicious. I truly believe that Thanksgiving should be spent with family and friends and not hovering over a stove all day.

With that said, this Vegetarian Brussels Sprout Bake with Parmesan & Pomegranates comes together quickly. Simply saute brussels sprouts, add cheese (and cream!), pomegranates and bake. The flavors taste sophisticated without being complicated to put together. Can you say wining?

Stay tuned because tomorrow I’m sharing three oven-less sides that you don’t want to miss! Also, if you guys make a dish this week or next make sure to tag: #CGMthanksgiving so I can see what you made!
