If you’re looking for a quick side dish for dinner or a quick lunch, then this Brussel sprouts with raisins recipe is the perfect option. This tasty dish doesn’t take long to prepare and that is one of its biggest appeals. If you have access to Trader Joe's, they have just the right size already bagged and quick to use. Most of the ingredients are pantry staples and so this can be prepared with ease.
Now I know I mentioned this is great for a side or lunch but it works really well for a special occasion side dish. Let’s take Thanksgiving, for example, just add some spices and maybe one or two more ingredients and you have a simple but elegant accompaniment to your holiday meal. The same thing goes for Christmas or a dinner party you may throw. You can easily add flavors of the season or herbs that can change the dish to fit the occasion.
Dress it up with toasted shallots, kick it up with Asian 5 spice seasoning or swap raisins for cranberries and pecans for Thanksgiving. Be sure to get organic dried cranberries, you don’t want added sugar.
This is one of those side dishes you can play with and it never disappoints.
