Grilled Brussels sprouts

A really tasty way to fix brussels sprouts has several variations depending upon what you’re doing for the rest of the meal. They can be ready to serve about 5 minutes, or you can finish them off on the grill or in a stir-fry for added kick! If you cut off the woody bottoms and remove a few leaves during your once a week food preparation, you can actually serve them in about 3 minutes! Amazing :-)

We’re having these tonight, along with dilled carrots, saffron rice, stir-fried leeks and baby bella mushrooms. One of our vegetarian meals for the week.

Brussels sprouts
Olive oil
Lemon juice or white wine

Place the brussels sprouts in a microwaveable dish. Drizzle them with olive oil and lemon juice, and stick a couple pats of butter on top. Cover with plastic wrap, and wave on high for 2 minutes, stopping after 1 minute to stir. That’s it.

But if you want to make them really good, let them sit and marinate in the juices for awhile. Then either stick them on skewers for the grill, or stir-fry them to sear the outsides.
