Cranberry Brussels Sprouts with Maple Syrup


2 tablespoons olive oil

8-10 Brussels sprouts

1/2 cup fresh cranberries

1/4 cup maple syrup


Wash Brussels sprouts, peeling off icky outer leaves. Cut in half. Over medium heat, add olive oil to a skillet. Add the Brussels sprouts, cover with a lid and cook about 5-6 minutes, shaking or turning occasionally. Turn heat down as necessary to prevent burning. Add the cranberries and cover. When the berries pop and there is some liquid in the bottom of the pan, add the maple syrup. Cook 3-4 minutes longer. Remove lid, and cook until the liquid has thickened. Stir before serving to glaze the Brussels sprouts with the sauce.
