Savory Brussels Sprouts

Ok, so this was stupid easy.  Again we were working to clean out the contents of our freezer, and I have been working hard to convince Heather that Brussels sprouts are actually delicious.  Mom’s cooking turned the corner for her, but unfortunately we don’t have bacon and butter on our side to coat them with their fatty goodness.  
I wanted to do something to them other than halve them and roast them slightly, so I started digging through the cabinets… Nothing really seemed to work until, bam, it hit me.
Gram masala.  
1/8 tsp sprinkled over the whole thing, and mixed through with about 1/2 tbsp of olive oil, and these things are delicious.  Next time I want to try coconut oil.  Ridiculously easy, but wow, will I be doing this again–probably with sliced carrots or beets as well.

    @thecauliflowercapers Brent's mom gave us a bottle of homemade garlic-and-rosemary-infused olive oil and we used it on brussels sprouts recently, and then we grilled them! They were awesome. Check it out: http://vahuntergatherers.blogspot.com/2012/05/grilled-brussels-sprouts.html
    We still need to try them sautéed with the special olive oil, but we'll get to it soon I'm sure. Thanks again for the tip! Have you tried the gram marsala yet? 🙂
