  • 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted


  1. Finely grate zest of 1 orange; set zest aside. Cut that orange in half; squeeze juice into a 1-cup measuring cup. Add enough water to measure 1/2 cup; set aside. Peel and discard white membranes from remaining oranges; section them and set aside.
