fall is the perfect season to enjoy Brussels sprouts. most people don’t really like the taste of this vegetable, but i have found that roasting them brings out a delicious flavor. other recipes i have tried include sauteing them on the stove-top, which is another successful technique.
for this recipe, adding apple cider with diced apples adds a sweet-tart flavor profile that is equally attractive when serving on the plate. this recipe comes together in a matter of minutes and is served to compliment chicken or pork.
to make the recipe: first, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. combine one or two chopped Fuji or gala apples with trimmed and quartered Brussels sprouts in a bowl. prepare an 11 by 7 baking pan with spray cooking oil. add the mixture with 2 tablespoons apple juice or apple cider. add fresh thyme, salt and black pepper to taste. bake for 25 minutes under tender.
the result is delicious and a very pleasing presentation. this is a perfect fall dish.
