Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 lbs Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 2 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • zest of 1 lemon

Directions

1. Heat a large skillet over high heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. When hot, add the Brussels sprouts and season with salt.

 

2. Let the sprouts cook, undisturbed for about 1 minute before moving around to make sure that they get caramelized.

 

3. Toss and cook for an additional minute and then remove from the pan to a plate.

 

4.  Add the remaining olive oil and the scallions and walnuts. Toss until the walnuts are toasted and the scallions are slightly caramelized, about 2 minutes.

 

5. Add in the apple cider and let reduce for 30 seconds and then add the maple syrup. Bring to a simmer and add in the red pepper flakes and a little more salt.

 

6. Stir the Brussels back into the pan and toss to coat. Remove to a platter, top with the lemon zest, and serve.
