You’ll never see brussel sprouts the same way again…
1 lb. fresh Brussels sprouts, halved
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
1⁄2 lemon, juiced
1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Steam the Brussels sprouts over boiling water until tender, about 10-15 minutes.
Heat oil and garlic over medium-high heat until fragrant, being careful not to burn.
Add Brussels sprouts, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and salt; stirring until they begin to brown, about 5 minutes.
Add balsamic vinegar (we like Fig) and brown sugar, stir for a minute and remove from heat.
