Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios and Lemon
I love this recipe because it’s so fresh tasting. In fact, I snacked on it cold last night. But then, I’ll snack on anything cold. Hubby tells me I’m weird. But what else is new?
The part of this dish that takes the most time is separating all the leaves from the cores of the brussels sprouts. After that – it’s easy peasy!
P.S. I always thought it was “brussel sprouts” (singular). Isn’t “brussels sprouts” weird to say?
Recipe adapted from Bon Appétit.

12-16 large brussels sprouts, trimmed, leaves separated from cores (about 8 cups), cores discarded
