  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, cut in half
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the brussels sprouts with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and black pepper.
  • Roast for about 15 minutes, until the brussels sprouts are lightly caramelized and tender.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice with the honey, mustard, cayenne and chile powder. Slowly whisk in 1/4 cup of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • In a large bowl, toss the cabbage with the toasted pine nuts and cranberries.
  • In a small skillet, heat the remaining olive oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderate heat until golden, about 1 minute. Scrape the garlic and hot oil over the cabbage.
