Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, High Fiber


6 ounces pancetta
big dice
4 tablespoons capers
1 ½ pounds brussels sprouts
trimmed and halved
1 ½ tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 ½ tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
salt and black pepper
freshly ground
cup pine nuts
4 tablespoons currants
4 tablespoons raisins, seedless


Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Add pancetta and capers In a medium oven-proofed pan over medium heat and cook.

Remove the cooked pancetta and capers from pan and transfer onto a plate, reserving a little of the fat in the pan.

Stir in the Brussels sprouts and cook in the fat over medium heat to start to brown.

Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, a little salt (capers and pancetta are already salty) and pepper.

Put into the oven and roast, tossing a few times, until nicely caramelized, about 16 to 21 minutes.

Add the pine nuts in a small, dry, sauté pan and toast over a low flame, tossing a couple of times, just until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.

Once the sprouts are ready, remove them from the oven and arrange into a big serving bowl.

Stir in the pancetta, the capers, pine nuts, currants, and raisins.

Toss and season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve warm.
