Kitchen Mailbox: An "outstanding" Brussels sprouts recipe


PG tested

This recipe for Brussels sprouts is outstanding. And all you need is 1 orange, olive oil, 1 shallot and toasted walnuts. To toast the walnuts, preheat oven to 325 degrees, spread walnuts on an ungreased baking sheet and toast 5 to 7 minutes, stirring to prevent burning.

1 navel orange

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
