I love that the majority of the comments I got when I posted about the Lemon Grass Ginger Soy Pork Chops were on the brussels sprouts and how I made them. Good thing I was proactive and knew you were going to ask…
Brussels Sprouts are actually not the easiest veggie to make, however they are one of my favorites and worth the extra effort. Usually I steam or roast my veggies, but with brussel sprouts, I have found that they taste the best when you steam + saute them.
How to Make Brussels Sprouts
Step 1: Cut off the butts of the brussels sprouts and then then cut them in half (hot dog way). At this point the outer layer of the sprouts will probably fall off, I usually toss that.
Step 2: Fill a medium sized pot with about an inch of water. Place the brussel sprount halves in the water and steam, covered, for about 4-5 minutes. Drain.
Step 3: In a pan, heat about 1T of olive oil and 1t of minced garlic on medium/high heat. Then sautee the brussels sprouts for about 3-5 minutes. I season mine with salt, pepper, and a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. I also like to add dried cranberries for some extra color and sweetness.
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. I like to eat my brussels hot topped with plain nonfat greek yogurt. I love mixing sweet/salty or hot/cold. Let’s face it…Chobani tastes good on everything.
I’m pretty much 100% focused on school for the next few weeks. On top of finals, I’ve been moving into my new place, AND I am going to the Blend Retreat next weekend. I am oober excited, yet super stressed at the same time. I can’t wait to meet some of my blogger friends, especially ChefKatelyn!
