Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Walnuts and Lemon.
Quick Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Walnuts and Lemon

Start to finish: 15 minutes

Servings: 6



Ingredients:



½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts

1½ pounds Brussels sprouts

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Kosher salt and ground black pepper

Method:



Heat the oven to 350 F.

Put the walnuts in a pie plate and toast them in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are fragrant and are a shade darker.

Trim the Brussels sprouts and discard any damaged outside leaves. Use a food processor fitted with the thin slicing blade to shred the sprouts.

In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the sprouts and lemon zest, then reduce the heat to medium. Cook, stirring, until crisp tender, about 5 minutes. The pan will seem very crowded in the beginning, but the Brussels sprouts will shrink down quickly. Season with salt and pepper, 1 to 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice and the walnuts. Serve right away.
