Brussels Sprouts

Show: Oct. 31st

Ingredients: Serves 6-8

2# Brussels Sprouts, fresh
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
1/2 cup Toasted Slivered Almonds
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
4 Scallions, chopped
1 tsp (Optional, minced ginger)
Salt and pepper to taste


First, wash the sprouts, blot dry and slice a thin piece off the stem end. Then cut an X in that end. The X allows the cooking to be more even. Remove loose leaves.

Place in boiling water and cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until a fork easily penetrates the stem-end.

(Too long cooking will cause them to turn an unappealing gray color.
Do not add acids, like lemon, it will cause a lose of color. They should be a bright green still when cooked.)

Cut the 1/2 bell pepper into large strips and place in the water during cooking, this will eliminate the odor.

After they have been cooked and cooled, cut into quarters, approximately 1/4 inch pieces and sauté with the 1/2 cup almonds, 4 chopped scallions, 2 cloves chopped garlic.
