  • 2 large Spanish onions, wrapped individually in aluminum foil
  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, washed
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil for sauteing the Brussels sprouts
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon minced parsley


1. Place onions in a 375 degree oven and cook until the onions are very soft (approximately 1 and a 1/2 hours). Remove from the oven and let cool. Remove aluminum foil, peel onions, and chop into large dice. Reserve. (This can be done a day ahead of time.)

2. Trim the base of the Brussels sprouts as minimally as possible. Remove any damaged leaves. Cut a cross in the base of the Brussels sprouts, about 1/4 inch deep. Boil in salted boiling water until tender approximately 8 - 10 minutes. Plunge into ice water until they are cold. Remove from ice water and cut Brussels sprouts in half by cutting through the bottom of the sprouts. (This can be done a day ahead of time.)

3. When ready to serve, reheat both the Brussels sprouts and onions in the microwave.

4. Saute garlic in olive oil in a large saute pan for several minutes until the garlic is cooked. Add Brussels sprouts and continue sauteing for a couple of minutes. Transfer Brussels sprouts to a large serving bowl and toss with 2/3 of the vinaigrette.

5. Toss onions with the remaining vinaigrette. Spoon onions in a ring around the outside of the bowl so that the Brussels sprouts are in the center of the bowl. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
