Bowl Full Of Goodness - Roasted Brussel Sprouts With Sea Salts

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
--- Sir Winston Churchill
Help victims of Haiti generously . Here's how you can help

Brussels sprouts isn't the first vegetable that comes to mind when you think of a healthy snack , usually its carrots or celery that top the list, but trust me once you have learnt to cook this cousin of Cabbage right way they sure would become a favorite. In fact they actually make a complete meal by themselves. With the cold season you hardly find vegetables in farmers market, however this is the season for Brussel sprouts. If you can't find fresh frozen ones work like a charm.
This is the time to take out your fancy salts that you have brought on your impulsive shopping spree, at least that's the way it is for me. Garlic salt, herb flavored salt, Himalayan salt or any sea salt for that matter makes quite a difference in taste.
2 cups of frozen/fresh petite Brussel sprouts
2tbsp Olive oil (substitute Pam or any non stick oil)
1 tbsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tbsp Flavored salts ( I used Lemon Garlic sea salt)
1. Boil frozen/fresh Brussel sprouts in salt water for 3-4 minutes
2. Heat pan with 2 tbsp Olive oil
3. When hot add boiled Brussel sprouts
4. Cook covered for 2 minutes
5. Remove cover and stir fry till Brussels turn golden brown color
6. Add salt and fresh ground pepper

Toss and serve warm. Guilt free snack , high on taste and low on calories.
I have done my part for Haiti, please be generous and help !!!
