Grilled Brussels Sprouts

Lesson 1: The veggie grilling pan we bought a few weeks ago may have been the best purchase of the year.
Lesson 2: Homemade rosemary & garlic infused olive oil is rockin’ on brussels sprouts.
Lesson 3: Grilling brussels sprouts are super easy and deliciously smokey!


Grilled Rosemary-Garlic Brussles Sprouts

Ingredients:

  • Brussles Sprouts
  • Rosemary-Garlic Infused Olive Oil (preferably, homemade)
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Method:

  1. Prep your brussels sprouts by chopping off the ends. (If you leave them on, like we did by accident, you will end up with an unpleasant, bitter taste in your mouth.)
  2. In a bowl, toss the brussles sprouts with the rosemary-garlic infused olive oil. Sprinkle in some salt and pepper if you like, but don’t go crazy because you’ll want to taste the sublet goodness of the olive oil.
  3. Spread the brussle sprouts out on your vegetable grilling pan.
  4. Grill over medium flame for about 10 minutes, stirring, tossing and/or turning frequently. Some leaves will char, that’s ok. If you don’t like the taste of them, just don’t eat those. 😉

We hope you like this quick and easy side-dish recipe. Try it next time you plan to grill up some big steaks or are simply in the mood for smokey and savory greens!

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.
