Lemon Braised Brussels Sprouts
Serves 2 – 4
12 Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
¼ – ½ cup water
½ lemon or more for squeezing
Coarse black pepper
Rinse Brussels, pat dry and slice in halves, length wise. With the tip of a paring knife, cut an “X” into the side of each sprout.
Warm the oil over a medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring until golden. Place the sprouts cut-side down in the garlic oil.
Add water, cover, and cook for 15-20 minutes over low heat, until tender. Arrange on a warm platter and sprinkle lightly with lemon juice.
Season with salt and pepper as desired.
