Candied Maple Brussel Sprouts with Almonds, Feta and Chestnuts

  February 18, 2014  |    Blog>Recipes

The first time we oven roasted Brussels sprouts we couldn’t believe how sweet they became simply from roasting them.  They are really like candy!  And add this splash of maple syrup, feta and almond and this becomes a sweet and savory combo—a dessert, (but really a healthy veggie serving!) to die for!

Candied Maple Brussels Sprouts with Almonds, Feta and Chestnuts

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 c. Brussels Sprouts, halved
  • ¼ c. Chestnuts, halved
  • 2 T. Maple Syrup
  • 1 T. Almonds
  • 2 T. Non- Fat Feta

Directions:

Fill a pot with ½ c. of water and bring to a boil. Add brussel sprouts and allow them to boil for 10-12 minutes or until brussel sprouts are tender enough to stick a fork through them. Next, remove them from the heat and pour them into a colander to drain the water. Briefly rinse brussel sprouts in cold water and pour them into a mixing bowl. Then add maple syrup and chestnuts and toss ingredients together.

Next, pour Brussels sprouts and chestnut mixture into a pan and sauté them for 5-7 minutes on medium- high heat until brussel sprouts begin to caramelize.

In the mean time, toast almonds in either an oven or toaster oven at 350 F or until almonds are golden brown. Once both the sautéed Brussels sprouts and the almonds are done add almonds and feta to the brussel sprouts and chestnuts. This dish can be served either cold or warm. Enjoy!
