Author Notes: This recipe was inspired by a dish I had at the Bazzar. There the sprouts were shaved and sauteed, rather than roasted. What really makes this recipe stand apart are the sweet bursts of grape and the chewy bite of the apricots. The flavors sound strange, but are a great melange for winter. - slulibby
