I love this different method of cooking brussels sprouts. Most of the work is in peeling the leaves, after that it just takes minutes to cook them. I found this recipe in Sunset Magazine.

We had these the other night. It is alot of effort {there's 5 of us} but very tasty. We liked the thyme flavor. The next time I may just cook the brussle sprouts whole and add some thyme to the water and toss in butter and fresh thyme. Thanks for the insparation. Bella

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and drain sprouts and cut about 1/4 inch off the stem end of each, then begin peeling leaves; when difficult to peel farther, trim off another 1/4 inch and continue removing leaves.
  2. Repeat to peel all leaves from sprouts; discard cores.
  3. Place a 10-12 inch frying pan over medium-high heat; when hot, add olive oil, shallots, sprout leaves, parsley and fresh or dried thyme.
  4. Stir until sprout leaves are bright green and slightly wilted but still crunchy, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
