We grow Brussels sprouts at our mountain home of 7600 feet and they are yummy cooked in this way. I was not a fan of them boiled or steamed so I found a way that made them spectacular... give it a try. Pinion tree (type of pine nuts) is also something we "grow" here in the Southwest. Ors were harvested off of our property but you can buy them but they can be pricey. I would suggest trying slivered almonds as a substitute.

Terri has done the impossible... She's made Brussels sprouts impossibly good! Brussels sprouts have a natural savory flavor. Cooking them and the onions until caramelized adds a sweetness to the side dish. Pinion nuts (or pine nuts) add a buttery flavor. Serve these as a side dish and you'll covert anyone to a Brussels sprouts fan. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Sauteed Brussels Sprouts With Pinion Nuts

Step-by-Step

  1. Start by sautéing the chopped onion in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat until clear.
  2. Quarter the Brussels sprouts and add them to the skillet with 1 additional tablespoon of olive oil (they can be bought frozen and thawed, from your own garden-fresh, or frozen and thawed).
  3. Add the seasonings. Let this sauté until edges of Brussels sprouts start to brown stirring frequently to keep from sticking.
  4. Add the pinion (or other locally available nuts and the final tablespoon of olive oil.
  5. Continue cooking over medium heat until Brussels sprouts are tender, about 20 minutes total. Remove from heat and serve warm with a meat dish of your choice...I often use lamb chops with this dish.
