1/2 lb. Brussels sprouts or 1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen Brussels sprouts*
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/8 tsp. salt (optional)
2 tsp. margarine
1/2 tsp. finely shredded orange peel
2 Tbsp. orange juice
1 Tbsp. sliced almonds, toasted


*If using fresh Brussels sprouts, trim stems and remove wilted or discolored leaves. Wash Brussels sprouts and cut large ones in half lengthwise.

Cook fresh or frozen Brussels sprouts with onion and salt (if desired) in a small amount of boiling water until crisp-tender (about 9 to 11 minutes). Drain well. Add margarine and orange peel; toss to coat. Stir in orange juice and nuts. Makes 5 servings.
