This my friends is a brussels sprouts recipe for anyone who thinks they don’t like brussels sprouts.
I’m telling you, these brussels will make you a believer. They are so.dang. good!
I originally found this recipe about ten years ago in a cookbook called, ‘The Healthy Kitchen‘ written by Andrew Weil + Rosie Daley. This was one of the very first cookbooks I ever bought when I was transitioning to cooking and eating healthier and this recipe has been a favorite of mine ever since.
The secret ingredient is nutmeg.
A little fresh nutmeg along with garlic and olive oil can create some serious flavor-magic. Not only does this combo taste great with the brussels sprouts, but it would also be delicious with cauliflower and just about any leafy green.
But be warned, this dish is spicy! So if you don’t like the heat, pull back on the red pepper. Other then that, be prepared to eat the BEST brussels sprouts you have ever eaten.
