I know, just the words "brussels sprouts" brings frowns and words of disdain from most of us!
But in my quest to incorporate more vegetables and olive oil into my diet, I poked around and found a few recipes for this unpopular veggie that sounded appealing. In my current lifestyle - with a new, demanding puppy in the house - anything I cook has to be quick and hassle free.
Here is how I cooked brussels sprouts tonight:
equal parts butter and olive oil
brussels sprouts, stems cut off and outer leaves removed, sliced in thin pieces
a splash of lemon juice
salt and pepper
Heat a skillet on high and melt the butter with the olive oil.
Add the sliced brussels sprouts and lemon juice to the pan and stir for about a minute.
Remove from heat and transfer to serving plate. Add salt and pepper to taste.
They really are good cooked this way!
