Simple Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts

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 Lemon

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!

  1. I really like brussel sprouts too! I haven’t had much luck with frozen brussel sprouts though, and unfortunately in my grad school life I can’t plan enough to cook with fresh veggies and frozen is our default veggie source. Do you have any advice for your brussel sprout recipes using frozen?

  2. I like to add a strip or two of turkey bacon. Crisp the bacon and saute the brusel sprouts in that and add the crumbled bacon for an extra little taste. I also qurter and steam them first before sauteeing.

  3. What is EVOO?

  4. I got a present of a bag of sprouts yesterday – will do this tonight but have to add crispy BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON! 🙂
