Quick, Easy, and Delicious Brussels
I am not sure I can make these Brussels look pretty, but I can make them taste good! Brussels Sprouts are one of those veggies that I think gets a bad rap because not everyone knows how to cook them to their full delicious potential! But it is really super simple, I promise.
Buy a bag of fresh Brussels, wash them, dry them, cut off the ends, and then throw them into a wide saute pan along with 1/2-1 inch of water, some salt and 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil.
Then simply cover and bring to boil, then lower heat and let them simmer until they have achieved your desired doneness (this is about 10 minutes for me - you can check them by poking one with a fork).
Remove the lid, crank up the heat and reduce until all the liquid is gone and all that remains are the Brussels and the olive oil which will create a beautiful browned crunchy caramelized candy sweet morsel of delicious goodness.
One last important step: Once browned to perfection, turn off heat, toss 1 Tbsp of Butter into the pan and cover again. Let that sit for 10 minutes or so, stir and serve, being sure to pour any remaining juices out of the pan and onto the serving dish. And then eat - oh my! SO GOOD.
Delicious, quick and easy to make, and, yes, of course, so so so good for your HEALTH! About 5 will give you all the Vitamin C and K you need for the day, and may even with cancer prevention!!
