Holiday Brussels Sprouts

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Maple Hazelnuts and Pomegranate Seeds

Brussels sprouts are a popular side dish during the Fall holidays but not everyone enjoys the strong flavor. The simple solution is to avoid overcooking them- it contributes to the infamous odor and taste. Add some fresh flavors and bright colors, like my Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Maple Hazelnuts and Pomegranate Seeds, and you have a perfect holiday dish.

A second technique to lighten up the flavor of  Brussels Sprouts is to slice them thinly (the same prep I do for other strong flavored vegetables like chard and kale in this Simple Sauteed Greens). The thin strips sautee quickly in a pan and is easy enough for weeknight dinners. For holiday meals add layers of flavor and color with toasted nuts and fruit.
