Vegetable — Braised Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Walnuts

This recipe serves 4 people


  • 20 Brussels Sprouts with stems cut off, and large ones cut in half
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced very thin
  • 2 T Olive Oil
  • Half Walnuts, toasted
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup warm or hot chicken broth


  1. Place olive oil, brussels sprouts, onions and salt and pepper in a skillet or a Wok.
  2. Stir fry over High heat for 1 to 2 minutes, until everything is hot and covered with oil.
  3. Pour in the hot chicken broth, bring to a boil, place a lid on the pan, reduce the heat to Low and simmer.
  4. Meanwhile, toast the walnuts in a microwave for 2 minutes on High, or in an oven.
  5. Stir the brussels sprouts from time to time, checking to be sure that the liquid has not boiled away.
  6. Add small amounts of hot water from time to time if necessary.
  7. Taste a hot brussels sprout after 5 or more minutes of steaming. If still hard and “raw”, replace the lid and continue to steam.
  8. When the brussels sprout is cooked through and still “crisp”, remove the skillet from the burner, leaving the lid on.
  9. Just before serving, stir in the toasted walnuts, and pour into a warm serving dish.
