While it’s fun to start off our recipe posts with dessert, as Mom always reminded us, you’ve got to eat your vegetables. Why not try out this easy and delicious recipe for Brussels Sprouts from Cornelia of HOMEGROWN.org fame?
Brussels Sprouts with Shallots & Golden Raisins
1 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (if larger than bite-sized)
2 quarts Water
2 tablespoons Salt (Yes, 2 T! You won’t need to add any salt later.)
1 tablespoons Olive oil
2-3 Shallots, sliced
1/2 cups Golden raisins
In a large saucepan, bring salted water to a boil and cook Brussels sprouts until tender, but still firm to the bite.
Meanwhile saute shallots in olive oil until soft. Once Brussels sprouts are done, but before draining, add the golden raisins to the saucepan. Drain.
Combine with shallots. Serve hot or room temperature.
