Sauteed Brussels Sprouts


This delicious seasonal vegetable becomes sweet and nutty when browned. For the best flavor and texture, make the dish just before serving.

    Made this in 2008 for a Xmas Eve dinner; got the recipe from MS' thanksgiving DVD I watched the previous month; simply delicious; needless to say that this dish has been served a number of times since.

    My favorite quick, light meal of all time. The lemon is good, but with lime all the tastes and texture come together in a way I can only describe as perfect. Absolute best with fresh, sweet sprouts cut in halves or thirds (for big ones).

    My niece made these brussel spouts for our Thanksgiving meal and they were a smash hit. Add some mushrooms.

    This is a great, tasty way of cooking brussel sprouts. I use grapeseed oil and saute cut up shallots first then add brussel sprouts with your choice of Dash seasonings. My guests went wild over them!! I used to simply steam and put butter on.
