How to make sauteed brussel sprouts?

First, wash and dry the Brussels sprouts. Also, you can peel off any loose leaves.

After that, slice the sprouts in half, lengthwise and place them into a large mixing bowl. Go ahead and mince the garlic too.

Next, toss the sprouts gently with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Start with a pinch of salt and pepper.

You can always do a taste test (when they’re done cooking) and add more if needed.

Now, place a saute pan over medium heat. Let it warm up just a little before adding the vegetables.

Afterward, let the sprouts cook for about 5 minutes while stirring them occasionally.

Last, sprinkle in the minced garlic and let it cook for another minute or so. Just long enough for the garlic to soften.

Remove the brussels sprouts from the heat and serve. That’s it, the recipe is done!

Kim and I hope you enjoy it and wish you all the best 🙂

Thank you, Sarah! Mine too :) I hope you get the chance to try using shallots in them, it's a nice change of pace from the usual bacon/brussells sprouts combination. Have a great weekend!
