Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs Brussels sprouts
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans chopped
  • 2 strips cooked bacon crumbled (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cut the sprouts in half lengthwise, then cut into ribbons (about 4 cuts per sprout).
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and garlic, cook until tender and fragrant. Add the Brussels sprouts and cook until tender, about 6 minutes. Drizzle the maple syrup over top and sprinkle in pecans (and bacon). Continue cooking for 2 minutes, then season with salt and pepper, serve immediately.

Notes

-Bacon is totally optional but makes a great addition to these sauteed sprouts.
-To toast pecans, simply place a large skillet over medium heat and add the pecans. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the nuts are fragrant and begin to darken, but not burn. You will need to toss them a every 5 minutes or so.
