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?

    Yeah, this looks amazing and totally going on my menu for this coming week. My husband swears that brussels sprouts contain nothing but worms, but maybe since this recipe uses just the leaves he might be convinced to try it.
