Happy October! How many times have you heard that already today? OR “HOW IS IT OCTOBER ALREADY?” OR “Where has the year gone?” You’re welcome.
Let’s balance out those sliders, shall we? This is a perfect side dish, it’s delicious, healthy, and couldn’t be easier to prepare! You can just go ahead and add these to your ‘new fall recipes to try’ list, I know you have one. If you don’t like Brussels sprouts (WHAT?) then you can try this with carrots, just as delicious.
Balsamic Lemon Glazed Brussels Sprouts
Serves 2 – 4
1lb Brussels sprouts, outer leaves removed and cut in half
1 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt & pepper, to taste
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and the sprouts cut-side down. Add the remaining ingredients to a small bowl and stir, set aside. After 4-5 minutes check to the make sure the sprouts are caramelizing. If they are turning brown, gently toss them in the pan and allow to cook another 5 minutes. Add the balsamic and lemon to the sprouts and turn the heat off immediately. Stand back, this will steam quite a bit! Stir everything together and allow the mixture to bubble and reduce with the heat remaining in the pan. Serve immediately. Perfect for FALL!
