Sauteed Brussel Sprouts with Red Cabbage

Submitted by: MISSTEARWEUS

Introduction

Before this recipe, I never ate brussel sprouts. This made me a believer. It is also a great veggie for a Zone eaters -- you get one block in just two cups! This red cabbage and brussel sprouts dish is colorful and flavorful.

The nutritional breakdown uses pork bacon, but turkey works too. You may need more olive oil with turkey bacon because your fat dripping yeild won't be as high. I've tried it both ways and have been pleased. Enjoy!

Ingredients

    4 rashers of Bacon cut into 1 inch pieces
    2 cups Brussel Sprouts
    2 cups Red Cabbage, shredded or chopped
    1-2 TBS Olive Oil
    1 TBS Maple Syrup

Directions

In a wok or skillet, cook the bacon pieces. Set aside and do not drain the fat.

Bring a pot of water to boil. Wash brussel sprouts. Cut off bottoms, remove one layer of leaves, and cut sprouts in half. Once water is boiling, add brussel sprouts. As soon as the water returns to a boil, drain the sprouts and add them to a bath of ice water. This stops them from over cooking and preserves their bright green color.

In your wok or skillet with the bacon, add your olive oil and medium/high heat. Add cabbage and sautee for about 5 minutes. Add brussel sprouts and maple syrup and sautee another 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Makes 2 servings.

Onions, garlic, shallots, and chives go great with the recipe, so try out your aromatics as you prefer.

    I omitted the maple syrup and sauteed a little longer than you recommended, sort of browning the sprouts. Used turkey bacon, a little extra oil. Don't forget the salt and pepper. We loved it. - 1/30/11
