Brussels Sprout, Sweet Potato, Goat Cheese Medley

This Scrounge could not have come at a better time, it's the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving! I created this concoction the other night when I needed something quick for dinner and had some veggies at home that I needed to use up.

The flavor pairings in this turned out to be so delicious! It's super easy to make and doesn't take much time at all, so if you're scrambling to figure out what to make for Thanksgiving, I've got you covered! Or if you just need a quick and easy dinner this is a great go to. You may be wondering if this is filling enough to be a dinner on it's own, but trust me it's more filling than you think! If you want to add some protein on the side or mixed into the bowl, go for it, I'm sure it would be just as delicious. Even a fried egg on top would be super tasty :)
