HAPPY JEWISH NEW YEAR and SHANA TOVA to all who celebrate! This is a great side dish recipe to serve for the holiday!!
Sweet Brussel Sprouts
(serves 2-3 people)
2 containers of brussel sprouts, sliced in half lengthwise
4 tablespoons of butter or margarine
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts
In a large saute pan, place the olive oil and butter (margarine) and let melt over medium heat. After it melts together, place the brussel sprout halves face down and let caramelize and cook to your liking. ( I prefer them a little over al dente, probably sauteed about 7-10 minutes). Add the maple syrup, salt, and pepper and chopped hazelnuts. Stir to combine and let simmer for another minute, place in a serving dish and enjoy!!
Tip: For an easy way to chop whole hazelnuts use a mini food processor!
