SUPERFOODS: Brussel Sprouts

2 Feb

I’ve always been very leery of brussel sprouts. Even the words made me cringe, but not anymore. Not only are brussel sprouts packed with nutrition, they CAN be delicious.

Place brussel sprouts in frying pan with enough water to cover the entire bottom of the pan & then a little bit more. Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt & freshly ground pepper. Heat covered on high for about 8 minutes. Water should begin to disappear as its steaming up the sprouts to a soft texture. Once all the water is gone drizzle with a touch more olive oil & season once more.

Cover & cook for at least 5 minutes, checking & rotating occasionally. They are ready to eat when they are charred & soft. Enjoy these delicious little guys!

(They’re also great for leftovers! Microwave & enjoy again.)
