Christmas being just around the corner, I thought I would share a recipe for a side dish you might like to use during the holidays. This is one vegetable that you must use FRESH. It just isn't the same if you try it with the frozen vegetables. Some vegetables like corn, peas, lima beans and a few others are just fine if you use frozen, but Brussels Sprouts MUST be cooked fresh or they are watery and their flavor is bitter. So if you think you don't like them, and all you have ever had is those little frozen balls, then you absolutely must try the recipe below!
FABULOUS BRUSSELS SPROUTS
10 ounces FRESH Brussels Sprouts, cut in half
1/2 large sweet onion halved and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon FRESHLY GRATED Nutmeg
Fat free chicken broth...
Place onions, brussels sprouts and oil in large frying pan and add about 1/2 cup chicken broth and begin to saute on high heat, stirring occasionally. Saute until tender (adding more chicken broth if it evaporates before the sprouts are tender).
Add grated nutmeg just before sprouts are done and stir in.
You may add a tablespoon or two of butter if you desire, but it isn't really necessary.
Salt and Pepper to taste!
Believe me, these are fabulous, and even people who think they don't like brussels sprouts have raved about these!
