This recipe I’ll make today. Great photos with it on The Accidental Hedonist.

UPDATE: Extremely tasty. I did add crushed red pepper to the olive oil and garlic (and modified recipe accordingly)

1 pint Brussels sprouts
2 tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 onion, chopped
1 tomato, sliced
a few sprigs of cilantro, chopped
salt
pepper

Steam the Brussels sprouts for 5-10 minutes until soft and easily pierced.

Warm olive oil in pan and add garlic and crushed red pepper – allow the warm olive oil to draw fragrance and flavor from the garlic without cooking/burning the garlic. Increase the heat and add the tomatoes and onions to the oil. Let sauté/stew for 5-7 minutes over medium heat until tomatoes start breaking apart and looking more sauce-like. In the meantime, add the cilantro and sauté another minute. Finally add in the Brussels sprouts and cook for 5 more minutes over low heat, stirring periodically. Season with salt and pepper as you like and serve.

Brussels sprouts: not just for breakfast anymore

leave a comment »

I really like Brussels sprouts. For a while, they were bitter, but growers came to their senses, and nowadays they are almost sweet—as well as exceptionally nutritious. I cut them in half vertically (through the stem) and steam them for 8 or 9 minutes, then pour some balsamic vinegar over them and refrigerate them. That way I can cook once and eat them over several days. Tasty, and look at the nutritional table at the link (scroll down).
