We do, indeed, like Brussels sprouts around here. I know they are not everyone’s favorite vegetable, but we eat them quite often especially if they are fixed as I made them tonight. I found this recipe in a Williams Sonoma advertisement booklet for Thanksgiving celebrations in 2013. We used to go over to our local store on Sundays for their free cooking classes. They were very good and a friendly group of people always attended. The samples were great, too.
The exact recipe is who knows where at this point so I will try to list what I dumped together last night for dinner. I served them with chicken and flavored rice.
Brussels Sprouts that Actually Taste Good
3 cups raw Brussels sprouts, trimmed and sliced
1/2 medium onion
1/2 small garlic clove (I just had a few gratings. This shouldn’t overpower the onion)
butter and/or olive oil
1/2 apple, peeled, cored and coarsely cubed
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup walnuts
1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
Soften the Brussels sprouts, onions and garlic in the butter or oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the apple and cook until desired tenderness. Reduce heat to low. Toss in the walnuts and stir in the mustard. Cook over low heat 5 minutes or until flavors are combined. Serve warm.
