Makes a great side, or try doubling the sauce recipe and toss the Brussels sprouts with pasta.


1 pound
Brussels sprouts
1 clove
garlic (minced)
2 tablespoons
1/2 cup
stock, vegetable (or water)
1 tablespoon
brown sugar
2 tablespoons
orange juice
orange zest (of one orange)
black pepper
2 tablespoons
pine nuts (toasted)


To prepare the Brussels sprouts, rinse them in cold water, trim the stems, remove the outer leaves, (including any torn or ragged ones) and cut them in half from top to bottom (choose smaller Brussels sprouts with tightly-closed heads). In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the halved Brussels sprouts and sauté for about 4 minutes, then add the garlic and sauté 1 minute more until the Brussels sprouts start to brown on the edges. Add the water or broth, cover the skillet, and let the Brussels sprouts steam for 5 minutes. While the sprouts are steaming, prepare the glaze by stirring together the apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, orange juice, orange zest, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl. Remove lid from the Brussels sprouts and add the glaze ingredients. Cook on medium-high for about two minutes or until the glaze becomes syrupy, stirring or tossing the Brussels sprouts until well coated. Sprinkle the Brussels sprouts with the toasted pine nuts and serve warm.
