Summer Brussels Sprout Medley

The perfect summer companion to your favorite fish or grilled foods.

Sautee a red onion in 1 tbsp of coconut oil along with 2 – 3 strips of bacon, depending on your taste. We modify our coconut oil based on the bacon grease, if it’s less marbled, we use up to a tbsp of coconut oil, if not, much less.

On medium heat, saute onion and 3 cloves of fresh finely chopped garlic with bacon and oil plus your liking of fresh thyme, and a bit of caraway seed – a little bit of sea salt and fresh ground pepper and stir in your flash boiled brussels sprouts.  Stir in for two minutes or so and reduce heat to medium or a little less.

To flash boil sprouts:  heat small pot with salted water and once boiling add sprouts, boil for 5 minutes and reduce heat, cover for another 5 – 10 minutes depending on how much you are making.

We made 2 cups which were enough for the two of us, at boiling 7 minutes and covered for 5 before adding to the wonderful stirred veggies as you see above.

If you love brussels sprouts, this is an easy and delicious dish…we hope that you enjoy it as much as we did.
