Brussels Sprouts & Water Chestnuts

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bergy

This is such an easy recipe and it does dress up the sprouts - the chestnuts stay crunchy. I sometimes add a few button mushrooms too.

Wonderful recipe Bergy! I followed the recipe exactly except I cheated and used a bag of frozen sprouts. I also used the Splenda so I could stay legal on my low carb diet. I loved the crunchiness of the water chestnuts and the finishing touch of the lemon juice gave this a wonderful "tangy" flavor! This is easy enough to do every day, and yet impressive enough to serve to guests or at a Holiday meal!
