Easy Peasy Seasoned Brussels Sprouts

We recently ate at a nearby restaurant in New York City and the fish dish was accompanied by roasted Brussels sprouts that were so delicious that we had to come home and make our own the next day!

We were especially motivated to re-create the Brussels sprouts because of their delicious taste, but let’s face it, there are plenty of reasons to dig in! (Pssst… if you want some other veggie recipes, try our Spicy “Fried” Broccoli, our Easy Crunchy Braised Cabbage, Colorful Detox Salad, Caramelized Cauliflower with Olive Oil and Lemon Juice, Easy Peasy Seasoned Brussel Sprouts  and our Roasted detoxifying Veggies.)

 

Brussels sprouts are nutrient power houses and are part of the cruciferous family—which means they help to stop cancer in its’ tracks! Plus, they’re low-calorie and packed with Vitamin C, folate and FIBER! Yep, thanks to their high fiber content, these babies help flush wastes and toxins (eh hem, yes, they help you go to the bathroom) out of your body so you can feel light and free and get a flatter stomach!

 

Another great benefit? Brussel sprouts help to lower cholesterol! So why not go ahead and try out delicious recipe?! It’s only 54 calories for an entire cup!

 

Easy Peasy Seasoned Brussels Sprouts

 

Serves 2, 1 cup servings

 

Ingredients

 

2 cups fresh Brussels sprouts, cleaned and cut in half

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp black pepper

1 tbsp Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar (if you don’t have raspberry vinegar, another fruity vinegar is fine and balsamic vinegar works too)

EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) in a spray bottle

 

 

Directions

In a sealed container (we use a glass storage container—but if you only have plastic Tupperware that works too), add: the Brussels sprouts, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and black pepper. Shake! Feel free to play some music, do a little dance and burn some extra calories when shaking your ingredients together! J Your ingredients should be fully mixed! Then, preheat a skillet on medium heat for 30-60 seconds (depending on heating capabilities of your stove top). Quickly spray your EVOO and toss in your Brussels sprouts (flat side down). Allow this side to cook for 1-2 minutes then flip and allow the other side to also slightly brown. Remove from heat and put in a serving dish. Drizzle your delicious Brussels Sprouts with the Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar. Enjoy!
