Brussels Sprouts With Cranberries & Garlic


Brussels Sprouts With Cranberries & Garlic (Paleo, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Whole30)

Brussels sprouts are often disliked due to historically unpleasant encounters, such as when someone has boiled the shit out of them and served them to you with no salt, butter or any other joy. If that’s happened to you and you’ve been to scared to touch Brussels sprouts again, then I must urge you to try this recipe.

The key to preparing Brussels sprouts is to cook them lightly, so they retain their wonderful texture and colour. They definitely love a little salt and pair beautifully with things like bacon, fruit, nuts and seeds. Today’s recipe is super simple and makes a great dish of pan-fried Brussels sprouts with cranberries and garlic.

If Brussels sprouts are out of season, you can use this recipe for cabbage or cauliflower too. Serve it up alongside some lovely grilled pork cutlets.
