2-1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, halved lengthwise

Meanwhile, spread walnuts onto a baking sheet, and toast in oven for 5 minutes until they begin to turn golden.

Remove cover from Brussels sprouts and increase heat to medium-high. Add olive oil, maple syrup and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, until sprouts begin to caramelize. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with toasted walnuts and serve.
