Steamed Brussels sprouts
Steamed vegetables are a great way to serve a healthy side dish, without adding additional calories or heavy sauces. Delicious too - steaming keeps them bright green and fresh.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 16 minutes
Servings 4 servings
- 1 lb. Brussels sprouts
- 1 tbsp butter
- water & salt
Clean the Brussels sprouts by rinsing them in cold water. This will help remove any dust or debris. Remove any brown leaves and with a sharp knife remove the end (just the tip) of the sprout and discard. Slice in half.
With a steamer - place the steamer in the pot, fill with water to the bottom of the steamer, add a tablespoon of salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Add the Brussels sprouts, cover again - steam for 6-8 minutes or until fork tender.
Without a steamer - place the Brussels sprouts in a large pan. Add water just to cover. Sprinkle with salt. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Steam for 5 minutes or until fork tender.
