Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Apples

Oh no, you are thinking…another healthy recipe.  Where has Susan gone?

Trust me, I am here.  I still want all.the.things.

But someone recently asked me to give one of their recipes a go, and while they all looked promising, I decided to choose – of my own volition – to try the healthiest looking of the bunch.  Turned out, it tasted fantastic.  Even my man agreed – this recipe, albeit the dreaded BRUSSELS SPROUTS – was a keeper.


Pan seared Brussels sprouts, tossed with caramelized onions and a bit of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!, followed up with chunks of fresh apple and garlic.  I know, I know, it sounds odd, and perhaps it is, but combined, it’s an amazing combination of flavorful goodness.

And healthy.  Low in calories, high in fiber and good protein.  Yes, there are carbs – about 14 net grams per serving – but they are healthy carbs, not the ugly, processed variety.

So eat up!
