We got so excited about how to make sweet tasting Brussels sprouts and enjoying the great flavor we didn’t think possible, we think we’re ready to make Brussels sprouts cakes, pies and cookies! But we must control ourselves and realize there is a time and place for even the greatest vegetable….so our Mystery Chef has decided that we can still have fun.
Enter the simple and tasty appetizer. This appetizer doubles as a centerpiece (no applause from the guests necessary) and gives your buffet or dinner table a very sophisticated air. It couldn’t be simpler: sauté the Brussels sprouts in the magical mixture of maple syrup and honey and attach them, along with their dried cranberry buddies, onto a decorative squash with toothpicks or skewers (you can be as creative as you like, here, depending on the season, by using any larger fruit or vegetable for the appetizer base, or varying the ingredients on the toothpicks or skewers).
One of the reasons Mystery Chef is so happy about these sprouts is that they are a wealth of vitamins and nutrients, and combined with the anti-oxidant qualties of the cranberries, this Brussels Sprout and Cranberry appetizer is not only delicious, but healthy too.
2 cups Brussels sprouts
1-2 Tablespoons grapeseed oil
1 Tablespoon cranberry sauce
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 Tablespoon honey
Decorative squash (acorn works well)
Toothpicks or skewers
