Roasted Brussel Sprouts With Pear and Pistachio

"Another great find at Food52, stored here for easy retention. After preparing per directions, but without the lemon juice, I topped it with teriyaki sauce (mango-pineapple), and WOW! Was that good! Might even toss in a little crushed red pepper next time for a sweet and hot flavor."

directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F Place the prepared brussels sprouts on a baking sheet and pour on the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix with clean hands. Place the pear halves, cut sides-down, on the baking sheet, making sure there is enough oil to coat their cut surfaces.
  • 2. Roast the brussels sprouts and pear for about 20 minutes. Then turn the brussels sprouts with a metal spatula so that both sides will get caramelized. Check the pear -- it many not be caramelized at this point.
  • 3. After another 10 minutes, turn the brussels sprouts again. Flip the pear. Reduce the oven heat to 375°F.
  • 4. Add the pistachios -- you just want to heat them up and toast them slightly.
  • 5. After 5 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven. Squeeze lemon juice directly over all the ingredients. Use your spatula to chop up the pear halves. Toss everything thoroughly, check the seasoning, and serve on a platter or in a bowl.

    Wouldn't 20 minutes on the pears make them mushy; I'm wondering if the pear could be added the last 10 minutes or are we looking for creamy sweetness to permeate the sprouts?
