  • 2 ½ Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoons low sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon  sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon  pepper


  • 16 oz brussels sprouts trimmed and quartered

  • 2 Tablespoons avocado or olive oil divided
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt divided
  • ½ teaspoon pepper divided
  • 1 crisp apple chopped
  • Chopped curly kale
  • Pepitas
  • Dried cranberries

  • Cinnamon and cayenne pepper optional

Apple Cider Vinaigrette Dressing

  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper plus more to taste


  • Make dressing by adding all ingredients into a blender and blending until smooth. Set aside
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Prep one extra large baking sheet or 2 medium baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add chopped butternut squash chunks into a bowl and toss with 1 Tablespoon oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Feel free to add a sprinkle of cinnamon and cayenne as well. Toss to coat and spread onto a baking sheet. In the same bowl, add the brussels sprouts and toss with 1 Tablespoon of oil, remaining salt and pepper. Save bowl for later! Place on the other side of the baking sheet (or the additional baking sheet). Put butternut squash and brussels sprouts into the oven and roast for 30-40 minutes, or until squash is tender, flipping halfway.

  • While veggies are roasting cook chicken. Add oil to a cast iron skillet and turn heat on medium/medium-high heat. Pat chicken dry and season with sea salt and black pepper. At this point your oil should be hot and the chicken should sizzle when added to the skillet. Add chicken to the skillet and sear for 4-5 minutes on each side.
  • While chicken is searing combine maple syrup, tamari, garlic, turmeric and black pepper in a small bowl. Once both sides of the chicken are seared, carefully pour maple turmeric sauce over chicken and toss to coat. Move skillet from the stovetop into the preheated 400°F oven and bake for 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked throughout.
  • Add kale to the same bowl you used to toss the butternut and brussels. Drizzle on 1-2 tablespoons of the dressing and use your hands to massage it into the kale.
