Meatless Dish: Brussel Sprouts


 For as long as I can remember, this veggie has always gotten a bad rap. I decided to make this recipe after seeing some of the ingredients listed. This was my first and last time trying it. My verdict, It will continue getting a bad rap. Sorry brussel sprouts, the tribe has spoken.

You need to hang with broccoli and spinach to get some cool points. I was pulling for you, no matter how much brown sugar I used you were a no-go. But you looked good though.


1 pound Brussel sprouts

1 Tbsp olive oil

4 garlic cloves crushed

1/2 lemon juice

1 tsp red pepper flakes

2 tsp salt

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp brown sugar

Steam brussel sprouts over boiling water until tender, about 10-15 minutes. Heat oil and garlic over medium heat, Be careful not to burn. Add brussel sprouts, lemon juice, pepper flakes, and salt. Stirring until they begin to brown about 5 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Stir for a minute and remove from heat and serve.
