It’s here! My first sprout recipe. This will be is an epic moment!
- 1 to 1 1/2 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 small onion
- 2 cloves garlic (sliced)
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- salt & pepper
Start by trimming the stems and loose leaves from the sprouts.
Next you will want to blanch the sprouts. Start by boiling the sprouts for about 5 minutes.
Then drain and submerge under cold water to stop the cooking
Heat olive oil in a frying pan and sauté onion and garlic until tender
Enjoy a Pom and seltzer “spritzer” while cooking
Add the sprouts and cook to your liking. I probably cooked them about 10 minutes until the edges started to crisp a bit. mmm look how good those sprouts look!
Add vinegar to pan and toss! I cooked for another minute or 2, topped with a little S & P and voila!
Don’t they look so good you want to eat them through the screen?!!?
Final verdict: Yummm! The sprouts were cooked perfect! Why have I never blanched sprouts before? Only thing I would change is the amount of vinegar used. I ate these alone and the vinegar was a bit over powering. Maybe next time I’ll add some chicken or tofu to the pan when I add the sprouts and make one main meal with this recipe. Sounds like a winner!
