Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Onions

I am a huge fan of Brussels sprouts. I recently purchased another stalk, from our local downtown grocery store Harvest Fresh.

I was making chicken curry tonight, and wanted to serve Brussels sprouts on the side. Today was our Oakhill Organics CSA pickup, and I had  not picked up our veggies yet, so our fresh fruit and vegetable supply was looking a little sparse. I looked through our crisper and found one apple. I then went into our basement, and located a stray onion left over from this year’s crop. What a surprise find. I thought I used them all in an onion, mushroom soup I made the other day.

The combination of Brussels sprouts, apple, and onion sounded pretty tasty, and as  I am playing around with side dishes to take to a potluck friendsgiving dinner this weekend, I decided to go for it. This side dish involves a bit of work, cleaning and slicing the Brussels sprouts, but I think it is totally worth it. This side dish is definitely in the running.

Tonight we ate chicken curry, with these succulent  sauteed Brussels sprouts, and some fragrant brown basmati rice. I hope you make and enjoy this yummy side dish at your next meal.
