Tangy lemon and garlic coated Sprouts. My favourite way of serving them.


  1. Cook sprouts, either steamed, boiled or microwaved, until just tender.
  2. Mix altogether the lemon juice, rind, garlic and melted butter.
  3. Pour over sprouts and stir to coat.
  4. Serve and enjoy.

What a delightful way to serve sprouts. My son who almost chokes at the thought of eating sprouts thinks that this is a terrific way to eat them. I used 3 cloves of garlic. In addtion, I sprinkled freshly cracked black pepper over them. Thank you Jenny. You gave me another way to enjoy eating my yummy sprouts.

Great and certainly a different way to ccok and serve Sprouts. I followed the recipe exactly using fresh Sprouts. Next time I will cut the juice to 1 reaspoon, only for me, but then on the otherhand DS commented on the wonderful flavours of the lemon. I par steamed the Sprouts and then finished them with a light roasting in the oven, before adding the the lemon mix. These were just fantastic Jen. I will be certainly making this recipe again. Thanks Jen.

My husband and I loved this recipe. We didn't have a lemon so we used bottled lemon juice and doubled the amount. We also sauted some chopped onion to add a little more flavor. Thanks for the great recipe!
