    Pan Fried Brussel Sprouts




    -img_3422-jpg

    Something I love to eat! To me Brussel sprouts are pretty boring when they're served boiled. So, I decided to fry up some instead.

    Take 1/2 lb Brussel Sprouts (plus or minus)
    wash, cut in half long-wise, peel away outer leaves.

    Place sprouts in a hot pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil (again, eyeball this...i don't really measure). Fry until sprouts get a little crisp, even a bit charred is good

    Throw in some thinly sliced garlic-I used about 4 cloves only b/c i love garlic, so use your judgement. Continue to pan fry for a couple more minutes, then squirt in half a lemon, some Kosher salt, and voila...delicious Brussel Sprouts! I'm eating for lunch right now...YUM YUM!

    They're really good, Traci. When i eat them I don't feel so guilt ridden since they're so "good" for you. Use less O.oil and they'll be even healthier. I love the carmelization and the acidity from the lemon juice.

    I may have to try this. I don't like Brussels sprouts, but will eat them because I know they are good for you. If this makes them taste better, I will eat them more. My hubby loves them. I actually steamed them last time I made them and then soaked them in some lemon juice for a few minutes.

    Sadly I have only ever had the green giant sprouts. Love them but hubby doesn't so I haven't bothered to try fresh yet. Someday....

    Tried. Loved. I think I'll eat them only when they are cooked like this. Hubby loved them, of course.

    I just had some baby Brussels Sprouts delivered; I will need to try this... maybe coconut oil (my latest fave) and one of those lovely Meyers Lemons!

    Think I will try throwing the rest in the oven tonight and roast them that way. Probably will be the same result really but will see.
