I may have previously mentioned that, against all odds, as an adult I have been converted to an unabashed, full-fledged, Brussel sprout eater.
Here is a super easy, fast, simple, delicious version ...
-olive oil or butter
-a big pile of brussel sprouts
-salt and pepper
Slice up the sprouts so their kind of leafy (see picture). Heat up some oil/butter, and toss in the walnuts so they get a little toasty. Throw in the chopped sprouts, and saute... you want to make them get a teeny bit brown, but not soggy (overcooking them is a top cause of nasty sprouts). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve! yum!
