Savory Brussels sprouts with pomegranate molasses

  
Roasted with tangy pomegrante molasses and garlic this recipe can convert even sprout hatersThis is inspired from many different Middle Eastern recipes. I became intrigued after seeing Brussels sprouts prepared like this on a television show, but I couldn’t find a recipe. So, I invented one after reading various descriptions of the dish. 
 
I make these Brussels sprouts with pomegranate molasses and nuts. It is delicious, different, and addictive – and may even convert sprout haters! I think the pomegranate and nuts make it perfect for festive holiday meals.
 
Pomegranate molasses is a popular Middle Eastern ingredient. This thick, tart syrup can be hard to find, but persist. It is delicious on lamb, in salad dressings, and in a variety of Middle Eastern dishes.
 
Preheat oven 400 F/200C
2½ cups large fresh Brussels sprouts
2½ tbsp. pomegranate molasses
2 tbsp. pine nuts
Salt and pepper
 
Wash, trim, and cut in half 2 cups of large, fresh Brussels sprouts.
Heat 1 tbsp. of good oil olive in a heavy sauté pan.
When the pan and oil is hot, add the sprouts and 1-2 cloves of peeled crushed garlic.
Reduce heat to medium-high and sauté for 2-3 minutes while stirring with a wooden spoon.
Salt and pepper to taste.
 
Transfer sprouts to a well-oiled, shallow baking pan, just large enough to hold the sprouts in a single layer.
 
Coat the sprouts with 2½ tbsp. of pomegranate molasses, and sprinkle with 2 tbsp. of pine nuts.
 
Roast in preheated 400F/200C oven for 25-30 minutes until tender. Do not overcook.
 
This dish is great with lamb, chicken, and fish, or for vegetarians, with lentils, rice, or a mélange of roast vegetables. It really is delicious and perfect for holiday entertaining!
