The refrigerator light goes on...

Lemon Butter Brussels Sprouts

Servings: 4 | Serving size: 4 ounces brussels sprouts

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied, but two steamers should be used. This recipe doesn't keep well.

1 lb Brussels sprouts
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp honey
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp unsalted butter

Fresh Brussels sprouts on the stem

Purchase Brussels sprouts on the small side (about an inch wide).

Trim the stems from the Brussels sprouts and then slice in half lengthwise.

Place in steamer basket in a medium stock-pot with about an inch of water in the bottom.

Steam over high heat until slightly tender (about 10 15 minutes).

While steaming, place the lemon juice, honey, salt and butter in a medium mixing bowl.

Add the cooked Brussels sprouts to the bowl and toss until the butter is melted and sauce is well blended. Serve immediately.
