If the words Brussel sprouts send you running to the hills, wait! This gingery combo will change even the most skeptical of minds.
And at just five ingredients (plus a little salt, pepper and water) there’s no harm in making enough for everyone — even those who claim they’re not interested. Plus these little green dumplings are high in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, making them a nutritious addition to your diet.
If you find yourself wanting a little kick, add a sprinkle of red chili at the end.
- 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts (about 5-1/2 cups)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- Trim Brussels sprouts and cut lengthwise in half, then cut crosswise into thin slices.
- Place a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts; cook and stir until sprouts begin to brown lightly, 2-3 minutes. Add oil and toss to coat.
- Stir in onion, ginger, garlic and salt and stir.
- Add water; reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, until vegetables are tender, 1-2 minutes. Stir in pepper.
