Not raw, but close! Brussel Sprouts...

These were a HIT last night with the little ones! They did not even hesitate. Usually anything with a leaf gets a turned up nose. But the 8 yr old dug in, so the 6 yr old followed. I am so happy to know that I can make these often and they will eat them happily!

Quick and Delicious Brussel Sprouts

Fresh Brussel Sprouts
Olive oil
Sea Salt
Ground Black Pepper
Garlic Powder
Italian Seasoning

Heat your non-stick frying pan on medium high heat.
Rinse brussel sprouts. Cut off the base of each sprout and remove any old or discolored leaves. Slice each brussel in half. Pour oil in pan. Add halved sprouts. Season to taste. Gently turn with a spatula while sauteeing 10-15 minutes, until lightyl browned and the center is slightly softened. They should still have that fresh vegetable crunch, but soft enough to chew comfortably.

I love the nutty flavor of this delicious and nutritiuos vegetable! And because they are sautee'd, much of the vegetable does not really get cooked...so they are closer to raw!

Brussel Sprouts are high in protein, accounting for 1/4 of their calories. Paired with a grain, it is a complete protein. What a great Vegan way to go!
Also high in Vitamins K, C, A, fiber, folacin, calcium, and potassium.
