Health Begins in the Kitchen: Orange-Maple Brussels Sprouts

the lid carefully with the steam vented towards the back. If they are still a bit undercooked, just let the cover rest on the pot for another minute.

Stir until the Brussels sprouts are evenly covered with sauce and serve.

(To cook on the stovetop, place the Brussels sprouts in a me- dium pot with a steamer bas- ket. Steam until they are fork tender. When done, drain in a colander and set aside. Re- move the water and steamer basket from the pot and pour in the orange juice, zest, “butter”, and maple syrup. Heat on a low temperature, until the “butter” melts, stirring frequently. Add the cooked Brussels sprouts to the pot and season with salt and pepper. Stir until well coated and serve.

Thanks for explaining the word “many” to me, it means a lot.

Letting the cat out of the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in.
