Brussel Sprouts Sauted Recipe

Before this day I had never cooked or eaten Brussel Sprouts. They have a bad rap for being gross. I decided to grow some this winter. I thought, "What do I have to lose". Nothing. My garden is not the greatest soil. Hoping to remedy that this year. So my sprouts are growing slow and small. That is fine. I picked a few and cooked them as:

Ingredients:

A handful of sprouts per person. (one for me only) Cut them in half.
Some olive oil
salt
garlic powder
2-3 dried Italian sweet peppers. (Optional)

Simple and quick. Just pull out a fry pan and add 1-2 T. oil. Heat pan and add Sprouts cut side down. Sprinkle with salt and garlic powder. Saute on medium for about 3-4 minutes. Add dried sweet peppers if using. Flip the sprouts on their rounded side and stir all a bit for about 3 more minutes. Put onto plate and serve.

I was amazed how good these are. Wish I had tried them years ago. They are delicate with a warm, soft, fresh, mild cabbage flavor. Not over powering. Just right. Try something new. You just might like it or even fall in love with it.
