Satur Farms Brussels Sprouts

brussels-thumb

These tiny cabbage-like buds from Satur Farms flourish in the nutrient-rich soil and cool climate of Long Island. Unlike the strong, bitter, and mustard-y variety that is so often found at grocery stores, these tightly wrapped heads are nutty, buttery, and mild. Toss them in an easy balsamic and red wine glaze and their natural hidden sweetness is enhanced. This simple recipe takes about ten minutes to make and is delicious when dusted with a fresh grating of nutty Piave or Parmigiano-Reggiano. Serve as a side dish or add into a tasty pasta dish.

How to make glazed Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar

Ingredients

 

Instructions

1. Rinse brussels sprouts thoroughly, trim ends and slice sprouts lengthwise.

2. In a large pan add 3 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat and place brussels sprouts cut-side down. Allow to cook until browned and crisped; about 7-10 minutes. Add 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar and toss until absorbed. Remove sprouts from heat.

3. Add remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and red wine and scrape bits off bottom of the pan to deglaze. Turn heat to high and wait until liquid is reduced and coats the back of the pan. Add brussels sprouts back in the pan and toss to coat. Salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with cheese if you prefer.

LA Organic Olive Oils and Vinegars

LA Organic Olive Oils and Vinegars Rated as one of the top twenty olive oils in the world, LA Organic has produced some of the most divine oils and vinegars in the world since the 1990s. And because we care deeply about your olive oil and vinegar consumption,  you can buy these fantastic products, from Spain, right here in our shop!

Drizzle the Intenso olive oil over fresh salads for a bright, fruity burst of flavor, or use the lighter, more delicate Suave olive oil as a finish on zesty soups or to infuse with fresh herbs as a dip for some of our crusty baguettes. As for LA Organic's over-the-top delicious vinegars, we recommend using the Apple Balsmaic Vinegar as a main component in a simple balsamic vinaigrette. We love how the apple undertones stand out dramatically when paired against peppery arugula and salty mozzarella.

Basically LA Organic can do no wrong in our eyes...or in our taste buds.
