IMG_1972.JPG

My go-to brussels sprout recipe! Including a vegetarian/vegan and non-vegetarian option. Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables to eat in the colder months. Its so easy to make, and comes out great every single time.  

Ingredients: 

  • 1 lb. fresh Brussels sprouts

  • 1 cup chicken broth OR vegetable broth

  • 1 medium shallot roughly chopped

  • 3 cloves of garlic diced

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 Tb cooking oil of choice. Coconut oil OR Olive Oil

Instructions: 

1. Rinse Brussels sprouts under cool water. Trim the hard edge from the bottom of each sprout, pull off any loose leaves, and then cut brussels in half. 

2. In a medium to large pan, (I like to use a cast iron pan), heat oil on medium heat. Saute garlic and shallots for 2 min, then add Brussels. Cook Brussels until they appear a little bit brown on the edges, just 3-5 minutes. 

3. Add chicken or vegetable broth to pan and then cover. Reducing heat to medium/low, simmer the sprouts for 7-10 minutes, or until they are easily pierced with the tip of a sharp knife, and all of the liquid has evaporated.

4. Add salt and pepper to taste. 

Enjoy Brussels sprouts as a side to a protein and carb for a balanced and nutritious meal!
