What crazy weather! I guess we should enjoy these unusually warm temperatures. They aren’t going to last much longer.
This week we are getting Brussels Sprouts and I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of just roasting them all the time. Here’s a good recipe for caramelized sprouts with nuts. Try it – you’ll like it!
CARAMELIZED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH PISTACHIOS
1 lb. brussels sprouts, washed and trimmed
3 TBS melted unsalted butter
1 small red onions cut into strips
3 TBS red wine vinegar
1/2 TBS sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pistachios
- Place Brussels sprouts in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover the saucepan and steam 8-10 minutes or until the Brussels sprouts are tender yet crisp. Drain.
- Melt the butter in a deep skillet, add the onions and 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Cook until the onions brown.
- Add the Brussels sprouts, sugar and remaining vinegar. Saute over medium heat until the Brussels sprouts are lightly caramelized.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with pistachios. Enjoy!
I hope you love this one as much as I do.
have a delicious week!
