A simple side

Until I started dating Brian, I'd never eaten a brussel sprout. And I wasn't too amped to try them. Now, we eat them at least once per week. If you like cabbage, you'll like sprouts. And this simple recipe will make you love them even more.

Simply Shredded Brussel Sprouts

You'll need:
Approx. 1 pound of brussel sprouts
Diced onion
Fresh chopped garlic
Approx. 1 cup white wine (use what you drink - we typically use chardonnay)
juice from 1 lemon
fresh cracked pepper
sea salt

First - shred the brussel sprouts. You can use a food processor or by hand.
Sauté the onions on med-high heat in about 1/4 cup of the wine. Give it about 3 minutes. Then toss in the garlic. Give that about a minute - just long enough to let the kitchen fill up with that delightful smell.

Next, add the shredded sprouts, the remainder of the wine and the lemon juice. Turn down the heat to medium and let it dance around the pan for a while. About 20 minutes - just long enough for the sprouts to get a little tender and soak up that glorious flavor.

Lastly, give it a hit of fresh cracked pepper and some sea salt, to taste. It's quick, simple, delicious and healthy. YUM.
