    Mustard-Glazed Brussels Sprouts and Oranges

    You'll win converts to brussels sprouts when you serve this slightly
    sweet dish seasoned with honey mustard and five spice powder.

    3 medium oranges (such as blood and/or navel)
    1 pound fresh brussels sprouts (about 4 cups)
    1 tablespoon margarine or butter
    2 teaspoons cornstarch
    1/4 teaspoon five spice powder or dried dillweed
    2 tablespoons honey mustard

    1. Finely shred enough peel from 1 orange to make 1/2 teaspoon peel; set
    aside. Halve orange; squeeze juice. Working over a bowl to catch the
    juices, peel and section the remaining oranges; set aside. Combine the
    juices to make 1/3 cup (add water, if necessary).

    2. Rinse brussels sprouts. Halve any large sprouts. In a medium saucepan
    cook sprouts, uncovered, in a small amount of boiling water for 10 to
    12 minutes or until tender. Drain and transfer to a serving bowl. Gently
    stir in orange sections; cover and keep warm.

    3. In the same saucepan melt margarine or butter. Stir in cornstarch and
    5 spice powder or dillweed. Stir in reserved orange peel, orange juice,
    and mustard. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for
    1 minute more. Transfer brussels sprouts and fruit to serving bowl. Top
    with sauce; toss to serve. Makes 5 or 6 side-dish servings. 2 points per serving

    Brussel sprouts - GAG ME! I am one of those folks that has always hated these, but also one willing to try a different way to make something. Will probably try this...

    We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors....but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

    I have brussels sprouts in the refrig. Will shop for oranges tomorrow. Sounds good to me. If I can't have a white sauce on them I'm willing to try something different.
