Orange Glazed Brussel Sprouts and Butternut Squash
- 6 Servings
- 15 mins Prep Time
- 45 mins Total Time
- 1 lb. brussels sprouts washed, trimmed and halved
- 1 1/2 lb. butternut squash, peeled then diced into 1/2 in cubes (about 3 cups)
- 3 tbsp. olive oil, divided
- 2 tsp. coarse kosher salt
- 1 cup Sahale Snacks Valdosta Pecan Mix
- 2 tbsp. butter (or ghee), melted
- 2 tsp. honey
- 3 tbsp. fresh squeezed orange juice
- 1 tbsp. orange zest
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
Step 1In a large saute pan, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Swirl to coat pan, then add in squash. Stir the squash pieces so they are coated with oil and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt. Shake the pan so squash spreads out in an even layer and let cook, without stirring, so that they brown a bit on one side (several minutes).
Step 2Stir and spread the pieces out again and let cook without stirring so more sides brown. Cover, and cook about 6 minutes, until the squash is soft, but holds its shape. (This will depend on the size you cut your squash so try one to test.) Once done, remove from heat and pour into a bowl.
Step 3Heat remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil of oil over medium-high heat using the same pan. When it's very hot, place the brussels sprouts cut side down in the oil, sprinkling with 1 teaspoon salt. Turn the heat to medium, and sear on one side until nicely browned, about three minutes.
Step 4Turn the brussels sprouts over and cook on the other side until nicely browned and tender, three to five minutes. Some of the leaves can be charred dark brown or black.
Step 5Turn heat down to low and add the squash back to the pan, along with the pecan mix. Stir in the glaze and cook for a few minutes, coating all ingredients and warming through.
