"Every day I'm brusselin'" should be the moto for the Model Meals kitchen this month. Our clients have made it clear that brussels sprouts are one of their favorite veggies. And rightly so! This adorable little cruciferous vegetable has a long list of health benefits. Here at Model Meals, we don't just want to feed your belly, we want to heal your whole body.
Brussels sprouts include omega 3 fatty acids for brain health, fiber for digestion and detox, and lots of vitamin K and C for heart health and immune support. So feel free to load up on this tasty dish. The delicious dijon flavor will keep you coming back for more.
This dish is also so versatile. It can be enjoyed as a breakfast with a fried egg on top and some crispy bacon strips. Brussels sprouts go great with poultry as a side dish too. Served alone they make a tasty light lunch or snack.
*use organic ingredients whenever possible*
2 lbs brussels sprouts
1/2 to 1 chopped onion, depending on your preference
3 TBSP ghee
5 TBSP dijon mustard
1/2 tsp fresh thyme
1/2 tsp fresh marjoram
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Rinse and drain brussels sprouts. Cut the larger ones in half, or all of them depending on your preference. Melt ghee in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add chopped onion and allow them to sweat until they become translucent, approximately 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and add brussels sprouts, dijon, thyme, and marjoram, to pan. Toss all of these ingredients together until everything is coated evenly.
Transfer contents of pan to a glass or metal baking dish. A large baking sheet can also be used. Salt and pepper to taste. Place into your oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Edges of brussels sprouts should be golden brown and crispy.
Remove from oven and toss once more. Serve immediately.
