Simple & Delicious Brussel Sprouts
Simple & Delicious Brussel Sprouts

Not sure that today’s creation should be called a recipe because it literally is frying up a bunch of brussels sprouts, seasoning them with salt and lemon, and serving with sunflower seeds and cheese. But sometimes the easiest things are the best things in life, right! 

By the way, did you know that some people might have a true reason behind not liking brussels sprouts – some people have a heightened perception of the bitter taste and brussels have bitter notes and this is why they are not fans of these healthy nuggets.

I probably don’t have this heightened sensitivity as I really love brussel sprouts. But not every kind – just boiled to a mush I will not touch them, but toasty and fried up like in this recipe – I don’t even need anything else to go with them as a main, just hand me a big bowl of these and I am happy!

That said – they do make a nice side dish to whatever protein you prefer!

Healthy Brussel Sprouts

Cooking time: 15 minutes


2 cups of Brussels sprouts, halved

1 tbsp cooking oil

The juice of 1 small lemon

Salt, to taste

1 tbs toasted sunflower seeds

30 g parmesan cheese


Heat the oil on a pan and throw your Brussels in. Use moderate to high heat and try to place the little cabbages cut side down at first to max the crispiness factor. Cover with a lid and leave for 5 minutes, then season with salt and lemon juice, toss them around and fry 5-10 more minutes until nice soft, but not mushy.

Serve hot sprinkled with toasted sunflower seeds and shaved/grated parmesan cheese.
