Day 8 of 21: Caramelized Brussels Sprouts


Not sure if I've mentioned it yet, but Gwyneth Paltrow is a huge proponent of the Clean Diet.  I am doing a modified version eating only the allowable foods on the Elimination Diet.  The Clean Diet is based on liquid meals for breakfast/dinner and solids for lunch.  Plus, some nutrient supplements.  I am eating liquid for breakfast and solids for snacks/lunch/dinner.  I'm not sure how she does it, but on my easier version I'm on Day 8 of 21 baby!

My sister, Sarah, absolutely loves all of Gwyneth Paltrow's recipes.  I have personally not used any of her recipes except for her Caramelized Brussels Sprouts Recipe.  Since she is a proponent of the Clean Diet, some of her recipes follow the 'rules' including this one.

You see, when I hear rave reviews from my sister about a vegetable recipe, I think about making the dish.  But, when I hear rave from reviews from her fiance, mainly the fact that he's a man and it's a veggie recipe, I need to make the dish asap.

So I did.  I must admit, it was simple and amazing, followed my diet, and the brussel sprouts had a nice texture. 

I served my little suckers over a quinoa/kale/butternut squash saute.  Also, to save some time I microwaved mine in a little bit of water instead of steaming. 


Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients
2 1/2 lbs Brussels Sprouts trimmed
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Your best Olive Oil
1 Lemon halved

Directions
Steam brussels sprouts for 7 minutes.  I put mine in a bowl with a little water and microwaved for about 3 minutes or until just tender.  Let cool and slice in half lengthwise.  Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.  Once olive oil is hot, place brussels sprouts in pan, cut side down.  Let the brussels sprouts cook for about 4 minutes or until browned.  Do not touch during this process!  Check one and if they are ready flip them all over and get a little color on the other side.  Remove from pan and toss with juice from lemon, salt to taste, and some drizzles of your good olive oil and serve immediately.


 Let me know if you enjoy Gwyneth's recipe as much as I did!
