Maple Mustard Brussel Sprouts

Looking for an easy, tasty side dish or appetizer? Fresh or frozen works well. A two ingredient sauce as a dipper for individual servings or tossed for family-style service. Can also use carrots, cauliflower, green beans, turnips, broccoli, peas or animal-free meats and cheeses!


Prep a bunch of fresh Brussel sprouts – peel off soiled leaves and discard. Cut off bottom cores flush with sprouts

Steam them in a colander or steamer basket over a pot of boiling water filled only 1/3rd up till tender.

Remove from basket, cut in half from end to end, then saute, cut side down, in extra virgin olive oil till lightly browned. Turn and cook the other side.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with a Maple Mustard Dipping Sauce for individual portions. For family-style, toss the sprouts with the sauce before placing in a serving bowl.

SAUCE: Use hot, room temperature or cold. You decide.

Mix equal portions of mustard and maple syrup in bowl. Taste test, then add more mustard or maple syrup as you like. It’s a great flavored, simple sauce and it’s animal-free.

Notes: When fresh sprouts aren’t handy, use frozen.

If using frozen sprouts, thaw first, wipe dry with clean towel, cut in half the same way, then saute and serve the same way.
