5 minute brussels sprouts


En español

Fall is here (and looking gorgeous!) which means brussels sprouts are available at most verdulerias.

This is a quick recipe that works wonders in a cast iron.


  • brussels sprouts
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed and quartered
  • 1 lemon
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Place cast iron over high heat and allow to get HOT.

Clean, trim and halve your brussels. Place them in the cast iron cut side down and season with salt and pepper.

After about 2 minutes add the garlic, drizzle with olive oil and lower to medium heat.  Give the pan a big shake after 3 minutes, shower with fresh lemon juice, and stop cooking once they’re bright green.  Serve alone or over brown rice for a healthy lunch.
