Description

This is a great way to liven up Brussels sprouts. The orange and ginger zing pair perfectly with the sprouts' floral flavors. I have a blood orange infused olive oil that I like to use with this recipe. It helps with the zing. Other dried fruits or nuts might be interesting experiments.

Ingredients
  • ½ pound Brussels sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
Directions
  1. 1. Shred Brussels sprouts in a food processor.
  2. 2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir shredded Brussels sprouts in the hot oil until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir pecans into the Brussels sprouts until pecans are fragrant and toasted, about 2 minutes.
  3. 3. Stir orange juice into Brussels sprouts mixture; fold in cranberries and ginger. Simmer mixture until juice is mostly evaporated, about 5 minutes.
