Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, washed and trimmed
  • 8 slices peppered bacon, diced
  • 1 cup thinly sliced shallots
  • Juice of 1 orange (about 1/4 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup pomegranate arils (seeds)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

Thinly slice the cleaned Brussels sprouts with the slicing blade of a food processor (or find them already shaved in our Produce Markets).

Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving all the fat in the pan. Add shallot to the pan and cook in the bacon fat over medium heat for about 2 minutes, or until just starting to brown. Add a little oil to the pan if it’s dry.

Add the Brussels sprouts. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes. Sprouts should be tender but crisp. In a bowl, whisk together the orange juice, pomegranate molasses and Dijon mustard. Add to pan along with the chopped bacon. Stir gently to distribute sauce evenly. Cook another 3-5 minutes to heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup pomegranate arils. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish the top with the remaining 1/2 cup arils.
