Ingredients

  • 2 Pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 Cups fresh chestnuts, chopped coarsely
  • 2 Teaspoons fresh sage
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. Add the Brussels sprouts and cook until bright green and just tender, 6-8 minutes. Drain well.

Melt the butter with the oil and broth in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the Brussels sprouts, chestnuts, and sage and cook, stirring often, until heated through, 2-4 minutes. Season with the salt and pepper, to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Brussels Sprouts Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Brussels Sprouts Cooking Tip
