Eat your Brussel Sprouts

Brussel Sprouts

Yes, I am one of those crazy people that LIKE green vegetables. In fact, I would rather eat broccoli, green beans, spinach, snap peas, all of it, rather than get fast food. One of my favorite vegetables (yes you can roll your eyes) is the tiny brussel sprout. I hate seeing this poor vegetable sit on the produce shelf and get over looked by other passing shoppers. I almost always get brussel sprouts, much to the dismay of my husband, at every grocery outing. (insert WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU here)

April’s Grilled Brussel Sprout Salad

10-14 fresh Brussel Sprouts halved/quartered depending on size
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 minced garlic clove or tsp garlic powder
season with Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
sprinkle of halved walnuts
sprinkle of dried cranberries

My favorite way to eat them is grilled and I’ll give you a very simple way to make them. I’ll steam them for a few minutes, then finish them off on my grill pan with a touch of extra virgin olive oil. Char them up with salt, pepper and minced garlic. Drop in some chopped walnuts and dried cranberries and you’re done. It’s a perfect warm “salad” for winter. Try it!
