Warm Brussels Sprouts Braise

Serves 4 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 11 minutes   Rated:

This is a discard. Not in a bad way, it just wouldn’t fit into on the newest book, which will be out there ready for pre-order any day now. It is a great side dish, for anything you usually eat. Lots of kids have issues with Brussels Sprouts (heck, so do adults) but this is quite delicious and you should really give it a whirl.

Overcooking the Brussels is easy to do, so don’t add time, they will continue to cook after you have removed them from the bowl. Go with it. Embrace it. Eat it!

Thanks to Tash from Little Bit of Thyme for this pic. Her beautiful pictures grace the new book, including the cover...even though she keeps telling me she doesn’t do portraits!! I am delighted with her beautiful work and cannot wait for you all to see it! Thanks Tash!
