All four taste buds are activated in this one. Bitter Brussels sprouts, salt, sweet honey and tart lemon juice. All suspended in luscious butter.
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.
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.
Serving size: about 1/2 cup
