Ginger Orange Brussels Sprouts

Recipe by  

"This is a great way to liven up Brussels sprouts. The orange and ginger zing pair perfectly with the sprouts' floral flavors. I have a blood orange infused olive oil that I like to use with this recipe. It helps with the zing. Other dried fruits or nuts might be interesting experiments."

The flavors go well together. I had to slice the Brussels Sprouts really thin to get that shredded look. Next time, I might just quarter them! When I have some, I'll give fresh cranberries a try in this recipe! Thanks for sharing it!

I had cherries rather than cranberries. They were way over powering. 1/4 cup would probably work better. I only put in 1tsp of fresh ginger because of previous ratings. It was not enough. 1/4 cup of orange juice evaporated the instant I added it. 3/4 cup lasted for the suggested 5 min. There are too many better recipes for me to make this one again.

Came across this recipe while looking for something that DIDN'T have bacon in it. I really liked the ginger orange combination and the sweet cranberries. However, I personally felt that the ginger was a little over-powering.

Didn't have orange juice, so I used the juice of an orange. No pecans, so I waited and put toasted almond slices on top to serve. Also, I quartered the brussel sprouts rather than have them all chopped up. As they cooked they separated wonderfully! No cranberries, so I added golden raisins with the ginger! Perfectly Perfect!

I loved this recipe although I did make a few changes for our tastes. I used butter (just because I felt like it) I reduced the cranberries to 1/4 cup, the ginger to 1 teaspoon and added 4 oz of crispy pancetta (because we can't find enough recipes to put it in). A pinch of cornstarch brought it to the perfect consistency immediately before serving. I cut my sprouts in half and blanched them for 4 minutes before adding them to the butter and the rest. Pecans:.....just a small handful, chopped (I have a small hand). :-)

Needed salt! I had to do substitutions (tangerine juice, dried chopped dates and apricots) but it lacked a sprinkle of salt to draw out the flavor. Otherwise, pretty good!

Delicious - liked by even non Brussel Sprout people. Reduce the carbs by using fresh squeezed orange juice.

Made this for thanksgiving and everyone loved it! Next time I will add some extra toasted pecans to top it off after making for a little added crunch.
