Hey Everyone, a Happy Monday to you’ll and I’ve a quick question for you ‘How many of you like Brussel Sprouts’ ?
Now, don’t be shy and I know a couple of you who would be like ‘Seriously’!! Don’t worry, I was there too and gradually developed a liking to these cute little brussel sprouts. I mean you do see it almost everywhere and many a times you would thought – What is this tiny looking miniature cabbage sorta veggie. Trust me, I’ve been through all that and would definitely give in to ‘D’ for making me try them. I still remember the first time we bought them and cooked them lightly and I just ate 1 piece – it was on my plate for the longest time. But gradually over the years, we tried different recipes and finally stuck on two – 1. The regular, steam and eat (The best & most healthy) and 2. Sauteeing it in brown-butter-red wine sauce (It hand’s down taste best). And also, everything taste good with a little wine 😉This method is fairly simple, just cut them in halves and steam for 5 minutes. In the meantime, prepare this gorgeous brown butter – red wine sauce which is so light and smells soooooooo good, I can almost eat it right off the pan. But hang tight, we are getting there 🙂 Saute the steamed brussel sprouts for 2 minutes, add the sauce, seasoning and saute some more (I like them lightly sauteed, but go ahead and saute some more if you may like).
That’s it, just serve and enjoy with your favorite entree or with just about anything. I’ve sprinkled them with some cheese, but If you are vegan or don’t want the cheese, it’s absolutely fine and won’t effect the taste at all.
So enjoy this recipe during your holiday parties or just for a cozy night in.
TIP: Whenever you cook with brussel sprouts, it’s important not to over-steam them (more than 5 minutes) as it begin to emit an unpleasant smell (which many leafy vegetables do)
