sweet and spicy brussels sprouts

i bought some Brussels sprouts so i went in search of a new recipe and found this one from Rachael Ray. since i’m not really a sweet and spicy person, i bumped down the sweet and upped the spice. the result, a really yummy dish!

after having this dish, m used the leftover sauce and made a new dish: sweet and spicy celery.


  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seed – or
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 2 tubs Brussels sprouts
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
  • sea salt and ground black pepper


In a skillet, combine vinegar, honey and stock with a whisk. Stir in bay, chopped onion, red pepper, celery, mustard seed and turmeric. Stir and bring to a boil.

Trim the Brussels sprouts and halve them. Add to stock mixture and season with salt and pepper. Cover and reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes, uncover and cook 5 minutes more.
