One of our favorite things about winter cooking is its use of bright, sweet citrus in savory applications. Here, we’re sautéing clementine with vinegar, ginger and a bit of sugar to create a flavorful chutney for our juicy pork chops. Then, we’re stirring roasted Brussels sprouts into our hearty freekeh salad to accent the grain’s nutty notes and add another delicious seasonal touch.

Cook the freekeh:

Prepare the ingredients:
2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the freekeh cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the Brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise. Peel and mince the ginger. Peel the clementine; separate into segments. Peel the shallot and mince to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra); place in a bowl with ¾ of the vinegar.

Roast the Brussels sprouts:
3 Roast the Brussels sprouts:

While the freekeh continues to cook, place the Brussels sprouts on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Make the chutney:
4 Make the chutney:

While the Brussels sprouts roast, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the ginger; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the clementine, sugar, remaining vinegar and ½ cup of water (be careful, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally and smashing the clementine with the back of a spoon, 7 to 9 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Turn off the heat; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

In the same pan, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork chops and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside to rest for at least 5 minutes.
