Brussels Sprouts With Onion and Mustard Seeds

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Irmgard

This recipe from the Canadian Living website is a very scrumptious way to serve a vegetable is scorned by many. I served it as a side dish with roast lamb and they went over a real treat. This dish reheats well also so it can be made ahead of time.

This was a delicious way to make Brussels sprouts! I followed the recipe exactly (except for using veggie stock in place of chicken) and it turned out just great. I have tried several other recipes that pair sprouts with mustard, but this one was different since it uses both Dijon mustard and whole mustard seeds. The seeds give it kind of a nutty flavor that you don't get with prepared mustard. DH has recently decided to like Brussels sprouts, so I can no longer hoard treasures like this all to myself ;) I will definitely be making this one again, thanks for sharing, Irmgard!
