Brussels Sprouts With Grapes & Walnuts

  1. To make, preheat your oven to 375° F.

  3. On the baking sheet, toss the Brussels sprouts (7 ounces) and grapes (7.5 ounces) with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 cloves garlic, 3 tablespoons shallot, 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper.
  4. Spread evenly and roast until sprouts are tender and golden brown (about 20 minutes).

Basil-Infused Skillet Roasted Corn

  1. To make, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon garlic in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add 1 more teaspoon garlic, corn (as much as you’d prefer), and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  3. Sauté 5 minutes or until corn is tender.
  4. Stir in basil (add to your liking).

Crisp Haricots Verts In A Sweet And Sour Bacon Sauce

  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer cooked bacon to the paper towel lined plate.
  4. Place skillet back over a low heat.
  5. Stir 2 tablespoons shallot into bacon renderings and cook, stirring until translucent (2 minutes). Whisk in 2 tablespoons mustard, 2 tablespoons vinegar, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/3 cup water.
  6. Increase heat to medium-low, add haricots verts in a single layer and cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are just cooked but still crisp (approximately 6-7 minutes).
