Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts, outer leaves removed and halved

  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dried orange peel
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, stemmed and quartered
  • 2 tbsp. veggie broth, or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. aged white balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix the strawberries with the veggie broth (or oil if using), lemon juice and the aged balsamic vinegar. Set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp. of olive oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the Brussels sprouts and saute, stirring occasionally for 7 minutes, until the sprouts begin to brown slightly.
  4. Stir in the salt, pepper, garlic powder and orange peel. Add the walnuts and stir.
