Well the sun is shining is again, thankfully. This little butterball hid way too long. Sun equals fresh veggies, bathing suits and sand – to my mind anyway.
Last night, I made a heaping bowl of Brussels sprouts. I just love the savory crunch and rich taste of this lean, green vegetable.
Cooking them is easy. All it takes is a few simple spices. And the result is mouthwatering goodness.
You will need: 1 bag of Brussels sprouts, salt and pepper, garlic powder and 2 caps full of olive oil.
I chopped each little sprout in ½. So just take your knife and half them. This way they are easier to eat and sauté. Pour your olive oil into the pan and let that heat up.
Just dump your little veggie bites in the hot pan and stir. Use the salt and pepper to your taste buds content. However, I used about ½ a tbsp. of pepper and like a pinch of salt.
Sprinkle about 1 tbsp of garlic powder into your mixture. Continue to use the spatula making sure the little sprouts are getting toasty and brown.
Let them sauté for about 15 minutes. Then let them cool in a pretty bowl and enjoy.
This veggie is so healthy for you. Not only does it provide your body with vitamin C, it also contains loads of fiber and is a part of the disease fighting cabbage family. Read about the benefits, here.
