Recipe: Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts with Chestnuts
Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts with Chestnuts
3/4 cup chestnuts (fresh roasted or canned)
1 pound brussels sprouts
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 deg. F.
Bring 2 quarts of water and 1 teaspoon of salt to a boil.
If fresh chestnuts are used, shell with a paring knife and toast on a
cookie sheet in the oven until the meat pulls from the shell and the shell
and skin can be easily removed. If canned chestnuts are used, drain and dry
Trim the outside leaves from the Brussels sprouts and cut 1/4-inch deep
cross in the bottoms of each. Drop them in the boiling salted water and
cook until they are fork tender. Drain the sprouts and drop into ice water
to shock and cool. Cut each Brussels sprout in half.
Add the maple syrup to a 10-inch saute pan and warm. Add the Brussels
sprouts and bring to a boil. Quickly add the chestnuts and stir in the
coconut oil. The syrup will thicken and glaze the sprouts.
Season with salt and pepper and serve. Serves: 10
