I’ve avoided Brussels sprouts like the plague my entire life….everyone always says they’re like little cabbages and I am not thrilled with cabbage. But, Bob and I found some fresh at the market, and decided to give them a try. I found this recipe on horsesandheels.com and it is delicious.
- 1 pound of Brussels sprouts, cleaned and cut in half or thirds (about 4 cups)
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- Add sprouts and oil to a large skillet and cook over medium heat for about 8 minutes.
- Stir occasionally to prevent sprouts from burning, slight browning and charring is ok – at the end the oil will be gone, so stir more frequently.
- The sprouts will start to fall apart a little bit, this is what you want to happen.
- Reduce heat to low and add onion powder, salt, walnuts, and maple syrup.
- Stir well and cook for an additional 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Serve hot and enjoy.
- Again….delicious. The first batch I made was about a half pound of sprouts (I halved the recipe). I ate them all. Not kidding. Then I made a larger batch, and Bob actually ate his entire serving (he was even less into the sprout idea than I was!).
- The recipe is so simple, nothing tricky or time consuming, it comes together quickly with very little fuss.
