New Favorite Brussels Sprouts Recipe?

We’ve been hooked on our roasted brussels sprout recipe for a couple years now – pretty much ever since sprouts entered regular veggie rotation. Now it seems like we might have a serious contender for our first string recipe.

Blame can be assigned to the Piedmont Review of Food, where JKD posted a recipe for Brussels Sprouts with Walnuts as part of his Thanksgiving spread (scroll down for the sprouts recipe). His preparation takes a little bit more effort, as the sprouts must first be lightly boiled and then sauteed, with the walnuts cooked separately, but the end product is rich and juicy in a way that might be pretty difficult to achieve with roasting alone.

    I like Brussel Sprouts stir fried with soy sauce. Not that I really like them that much!

    Littlem, you should try this one! Although, I must note that Phil used pecans in his recipe, which were amazing.

    That’s true. I have to admit that I picked the pecans out of pure laziness (they were in a pre-measured bulk bag so I didn’t have to bag and tag them myself), but they worked out great.

    I prepared brussels sprouts for the first time a few months ago. I cut them in half (or quartered, depending on the size) and tossed with olive oil, a bit of grated lemon rind, sliced onions, a few cloves of garlic and S&P. I then roasted until brown, tossing a splash of wine in the pan midway. The onions caramelized and were SUPER delicious – and I am just learning to love onions. Adding nuts sounds good…I like nuts with anything and everything🙂

    Hi – I’m here via PennyPlastics blog – and had to comment. Brussel Sprouts are the most underrated veggie ever. The most tasty I’ve made them was first roasting them in the oven with a light dusting of olive oil and salt followed by steaming them tossed in some Trader Joe’s Simmer Sauce (I think it was the Tikka Masala one?) SO good! I served them with a side of cous cous and maybe some fish? I can’t remember as the BS were the best part of the meal!

    The Joy of Cooking’s recipe is my favorite, it involves parboiling the sprouts and then sauteeing with almonds browned in butter. Delicious. I will have to try roasting!
