Here's a wonderful little side dish big on flavor. The strong, spicy flavors of chorizo blend nicely with the strong flavor of roasted Brussels sprouts. We throw in some raisins, fresh thyme, sherry vinegar, and shallots to create a really rich and complex dish. It makes the perfect winter accompaniment to roast beef, wild boar, venison, or even a heavily flavored chicken.
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Put the raisins in a small bowl and add hot water to cover. Let stand until plumped, about 10 minutes. Drain.
Put the Brussels sprouts in a large roasting pan in a single layer.
Drizzle with the olive oil.
Bake, stirring occasionally until browned and tender, about 25 minutes.
Stir in the chorizo, butter, shallots, and thyme and return to the oven until the chorizo is sizzling, about 5 minutes longer.
- For a wine pairing, try Pinot Noir or Syrah.
