Maple Brussel Sprouts and Ham Hash with Spiralized Apples

It’s nearing that time of the year: the holidays! Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s, and everything in between!

It’s time to gather with friends and family around the table and eat delicious food – and this year, let’s make it healthy too. Whether you’re attending a holiday potluck, planning Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, or just want a special meal at home, you’ll love this recipe.

Maple Brussel Sprout and Ham Hash with Apple Noodles

The Brussels sprouts soak up the flavor of the salty ham and the easy maple broth gives the dish an extra kick of sweetness, which is complemented by the spiralized apples.

If you’re looking for spiralizer recipes using apples, this is it! If you’re a vegetarian, swap in your favorite veg protein here, like a maple glazed tofu or even just toss in some quinoa.

You can prepare this in advance, just don’t spiralize the apples until you’re ready to serve – they’ll oxidize and brown quickly.

Maple Brussel Sprout and Ham Hash with Apple Noodles

You can serve this as a side dish (perfect for Thanksgiving) or it can be enjoyed as a solo meal. If you’re serving to a group, toss the spiralized apples with the brussels sprouts and ham mixture so they evenly distribute throughout.

Just starting: how much garlic?
Jennifer Corbet says:
Made the recipe with a little onion (out of shallots) and one clove of garlic. Sat down for a rare and lovely breakfast with my husband before he went to work. The dish was a huge hit with us both, and will definitely be repeated. Thank you! It is dishes like this that make me so glad that I both eat Paleo and bought a spiralizer. My hubby said this morning that he is eating things that he NEVER would have before, and really enjoying it. Me too.
I'm so glad to hear that you are helping your hubby eat more healthy - that's my goal! I'm so happy you liked this recipe and are having fun with your spiralizer. Thanks for your kind note :)
Sonya says:

Sonya what a sweet note, thank you!
Becky says:
Gonna make this excited!!! Thanks for the great recipe, Ali!!
Becky - you're very welcome! Hope you enjoy it :)
Jen says:
We really liked this! It was very different from anything we'd had before. Our apple kept becoming jammed in the spiralizer, but we made it work. I didn't see garlic on the ingredient list, but it was mentioned later. We put one large clove, but I will do more next time. Thank you for the innovative idea!

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
