Balsamic Brussels Sprouts!

I LOVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS!!! They are the most amazing little veggies- they have the texture of cabbage, anti-cancer components like broccoli, and the perfect side dish or meal any day! They are believed to be of Brussels, Belgium origin, having been found to grow there since the 13th century. I frankly like them a lot better than broccoli. And there is so much more you can do with these little veggies. I love mine cooked in balsamic vinegar, some onions, and garlic for a quick meal. They are also very very filling so if you are on a diet, substitute bread for some of these delicious brussels sprouts!


Ingredients:

3 cups brussels sprouts, halved
2 cloves garlic
1/4 chopped onion
1/4 cup chicken broth (or water)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
olive oil

1. Heat olive oil in pan
2. Add garlic, onions, and brussels sprouts. Toss around on med-high heat until somewhat brown (but not burnt).

3. Add water and cook on medium heat for about 5 min (or until water is dry on pan)
4. Add the balsamic vinegar and cook until the vinegar is gone.

Serve as a side dish, main dish, or snack!
