2-1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, halved lengthwise

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400. In a large skillet, combine sprouts with 3/4 cup water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, cover and cook for 5 minutes until sprouts are crisp-tender.

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.
