Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Caramelized Onions

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Caramelized Onions

3 c Brussels sprouts
1/4 c + 2 T Balsamic vinegar
2 T oil
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
1/4 c water
1 t maple syrup (or other sweetener)
salt and pepper

Remove wilted outer leaves of Brussels sprouts and cut in half.
Mix with 1/4 c Balsamic vinegar and set aside.
Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat.
Add onions, cover and saute until translucent.
Add sprouts and water to pan.
Cover and allow to steam until sprouts are soft, adding more water as liquid evaporates.
Remove from heat and mix in 2 T Balsamic and maple syrup.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add in 1/4 c roasted walnuts (or other nut of choice) for added crunch and flavor!

Note: Let me just say that I do not recommend eating 3 cups of Brussels sprouts in one sitting. From experience...
