Brussels Sprouts with Maple Syrup and Walnuts.

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

  • 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.

Notes:

  • 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.
