Orange Pecan Sprouts Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Orange Pecan Sprouts which belongs to the Sides recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pound (455 g) brussels sprouts
  2. cup (40 g) chopped pecans
  3. 3 tablespoons (42 g) butter
  4. 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  5. 3 tablespoons (45 ml) orange juice

Cooking Instructions

Trim the stems of the brussels sprouts and remove any wilted outer leaves.

Run the sprouts through the slicing blade of your food processor.

In a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat, start sauteing the pecans in the butter.

After about 2 minutes, add the brussels sprouts and saute the two together, stirring every few minutes until the sprouts soften and start to have a few brown spots.

While they're sauteing, you can grate the orange zest and squeeze the orange juice.

(You could use bottled orange juice, but since you need the zest, too, fresh just makes sense.

) When the sprouts are tender and flecked with brown, stir in the zest and juice, cook for just another minute, and serve.
