Confession: I have never knowingly had Brussels Sprouts.
Now, you can all let out your gasp! It’s true, my mom hates Brussels Sprouts, so she never bought them growing up.
I saw them at the store recently and thought those look like they would taste pretty good. Of course, I am also a firm believer that coating veggies with olive oil and garlic makes them all good!
I picked up a few and decided to serve them with a pasta dinner that we were having. My husband was a bit skeptical to try them, but he was pleasantly surprised. I was fairly certain my toddler would not touch them, and I was right. He is extremely anti-veggies. We tried, but it just was not happening!
These were very easy to make, I simply used olive oil and fresh crushed garlic then let them simmer, pop, and sizzle in the pan until they were slightly browned. It was a very nice compliment to the pasta we were having that particular night, and I am now going to buy them more often and try different seasonings with them.
Garlic Seared Brussels Sprouts
- 8-10 Brussels Sprouts They can also be halved, if you choose.
- 6 Tbsp Olive Oil Divided
- 1 Garlic Clove Crushed
- Pour in about 3 Tbsp of Olive oil and warm the skillet to medium heat, then add in the cleaned Brussels Sprouts.
- Next pour over the remaining olive oil, depending on how many sprouts you use, it may be necessary to add a little more to coat them.
- Lastly, add in the garlic. Let this cook for about 10-15 minutes rotating every few minutes so they do not burn. They will be slightly browned on the outside when done and soft in the middle.
