Little teeny tiny cabbages, that's what I think Brussels Sprouts look like don't you? I had planned to make the Swiss Chard Gratin recipe that I posted but I never got to the store to buy the Swiss Chard so for my extra veggie points I went with the Brussel Sprouts that I had purchased on Saturday.
I didn't use a recipe but just prepared them in a way that I thought would be tasty. I only prepared one portion as I knew that he who will not be named would not eat any of them. I cut five sprouts into quarters and blanched them in some lightly salted water for 4 minutes. Then I sauteed one strip of bacon (cut in small pieces) and a quarter of a large onion thinly sliced for about 5 minutes. I added my sprouts and sauteed for a couple of more minutes, finished up with a grinding of fresh pepper and then ate these pretty fragrant veggies with some baked Mahi Mahi......hmmm, good.
I thought those little teeny tiny cabbages were very tasty and the bacon accounted for most of the calories and one slice is not that many calories.
