Total Time:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 14 brussels sprouts (10 ounces), trimmed and halved

  • Kosher salt

  • Pepper

  • 6 ounces sweet Italian sausage (2 links), casings removed

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice

  • 1 teaspoon honey


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the brussels sprouts and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook over moderately high heat, stirring once, until golden, 4 minutes.
