I actually really like Brussels Sprouts and so does my husband. However, I know a lot of people do not fancy them much.
They are really easy to make and I prefer them sautéed with a lemon/garlic dressing. If you are hesitant to give them a chance, try this easy recipe!
1.5 lbs Brussels Sprouts (cleaned and cut into 1/2 inch)
1 Garlic clove (minced)
1/4 Cup EVOO
1 Tsp kosher salt
Warm a large skillet over medium heat. Drizzle the hot skillet with EVOO and add the Brussels sprouts. Add the kosher salt and pepper to taste. Cook for about 10 minutes stirring frequently. When they are mostly browned remove from the heat. Transfer them in a bowl and set to the side.
Warm a smaller skillet over medium heat. Drizzle with EVOO. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes. Don’t let it brown! Immediately remove from heat and spoon garlic into a small bowl. Add the extra virgin olive oil. Squeeze the lemon to juice it and combine with the garlic. Whisk together for 3 min.
Pour the vinaigrette over the Brussels sprouts and toss to coat.
Serve and enjoy!
