I live about a 40 minutes drive from the nearest grocery store, and in the winter that can be delayed any further, so it’s really important to have good food in the freezer and pantry.
This is a super simple recipe, takes about 15 minutes start to finish.
- 1 package frozen brussel sprouts (fresh obviously work amazing too, if you have them on hand)
- 1 Tbsp refined coconut oil or canola oil
- 1 cup walnuts (raw is best, but use what you got)
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp Montreal Steak spice
Boil or steam the frozen brussel sprouts (or fresh ones!) until jusssstttt undercooked, and set aside when ready.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a cast iron pan over medium high, and when hot, add the walnuts:
Stirring frequently, toast the walnuts until they are hot and have a few brown spots, then add the soy sauce, water and brown sugar, it will sizzle like mad and you will have to stir everything quickly and frequently!
The walnuts will get marks of soy saucey, caramelly goodness, when they are mostly covered (a minute or two), add in the mostly cooked brussels sprouts:
Toss until the brussels sprouts are mostly covered with the sticky soy sauce mix, and then add the Montreal Steak Spice (or your preferred spice mix, but I highly recommend this one in particular).
Put ‘er in a bowl and enjoy!
