If you like your veggies well done increase cooking time but for best flavor keep them crisp. I love the lemon parsley flavor of this recipe

This is a very simple, tasty way to do Brussels Sprouts - a very nice change from boiled with butter on top! The lemon and parsley add a wonderful flavour. I found I didn't need to cook them in the skillet more than a couple of minutes. I will be making this often. Thanks Bergy.

This is a great way to perk up brussel sprouts. Fixed these last night with fish and okra muffins by nurse di.
