A friend posted a picture of a brussels sprout dish with bacon and sweet balsamic vinegar glaze on instagram and I got hungry, then I got to thinking about how I could make something similar with out the bacon (sorry bacon lovers) a protein that was leaner and with a bit of a spicy kick. I have really been a really good girl lately eating a diet loaded with fresh clean veggies and lean protein. I have been feeling better for it, loads more energy and getting a great night sleep.
One of the keys to being successful at eating all those fresh veggies and lean proteins is of course grocery shopping in the produce section, not the freezer or can good section, but also having recipes that are easy, delicious and simple to pull together. This dish is a one pot wonder, no other baking dishes required (I love an easy clean up), is Paleo (Sriaracha sauce is fine in small amounts) and Gluten Free. I made enough so I would have leftovers and had it for my lunch the next day. Yep it reheated just fine.
Note: You could substitute Bison/Buffalo in place of the turkey to keep this dish lean.
