Soy & Scallion Brussels Sprouts

Saturday, November 16, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

Today we are putting an Asian style twist on one of our favorite veggies, the Brussels sprout!  Why our hubbies don't enjoy these delicious little cabbage balls we will never understand!  That's not going to stop us from enjoying ;)

To make simply sauté up halved brussels sprouts in olive oil, soy sauce, garlic and scallions.  Gorgeous and super healthy!  Brussels sprouts are loaded with antioxidants, fiber and are even believed to protect us against cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.  Um, seconds please!

YUM, this was SO delicious!  We had a nice big bowl for lunch, however this would be a lovely side dish to serve at a dinner party!  Hope you enjoy :)
