Brussels Sprouts with Roasted Chestnuts

Adapted By Brennan's 27 Sep 2018

Serving Size:Serves 8

Ingredients

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 1/4 cup water

2 lb (about 8 cups) Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise

1 cup heavy cream

2/3 cup (4oz) roasted whole chestnuts* peeled and coarsely crumbled

Description
A touch of cream transforms this dish into a sumptuous side that exposes the luxurious character of this often homely vegetable.

Preparation
Bring butter, salt, pepper, and 1 cup water to a boil over high heat in a deep 12-inch heavy skillet, then add Brussels sprouts and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove lid and boil over moderately high heat until water is evaporated and sprouts are lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cream and remaining 1/4 cup water and bring to a boil, stirring. Add chestnuts, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes.
