flavor of Brussels sprouts.

- 1 teaspoon ginger, fresh, grated
- 1/4 cup vegetable broth

- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- Place walnuts in a large skillet set over medium heat. Cook for 5
minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring frequently.

- Heat oil in same skillet over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts and
ginger and cook for 5 minutes or until sprouts are lightly browned, stirring
- Add remaining ingredients and reduce heat to low. Cook for 5 to 10

glazed with sauce.
