Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I like many people out there always associated Brussels sprouts with "ewww".  Not veggies I would ever really be into trying let alone making for my kids. 

All I'll say about todays recipe is don't knock 'em until you try 'em.

Fresh Brussels Sprouts - outer leaves removed (the wrinkly ones)
Water for steaming
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt

Once you have removed the outer leaves rinse the Brussels sprouts with cold water.

Place the rinsed Brussels sprouts in about an inch of water and cover on medium heat for about 5 minutes.  You'll know they have steamed long enough when they turn super green.

After they have steamed (carefully) dump the hot Brussels sprouts onto cutting board and allow them to cool before cutting them in half (vertically).

Coat a sauce pan with the olive oil and heat on medium. Slowly add the cut Brussels sprouts to the pan flat side down.

Sprinkle with seat salt and allow the flat side to brown before carefully flipping to the other side.  Don't move them around in the pan until one side is browned.

Serve them warm and sit back and watch as your children actually eat them!!
