Garlic Brussels Sprouts & Leeks

Friday, October 18, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

How do our hubbies not enjoy brussels sprouts?  As these are one of our absolute favs we just don't get it!  Oh well, they are missing out - not us ;)  If you have yet to try these little cabbage balls, this is a great way to introduce the veggie into your diet.  Doesn't everything taste good with garlic and leeks anyway?

This is a great side dish for any dinner party you're hosting or simply enjoy for lunch (as we did)!  To make simply sauté up halved brussels sprouts in olive oil alongside leeks and garlic.  YUM... as if that wasn't enough we are topping the whole dish with nutty parmesan cheese!

Easy, delicious and nutritious.. our favorite combo!  ENJOY :)
