Very tasty savoury brussels sprouts. I used left over cooked sprouts and just halved them for the recipe. They certainly got new life again.

Such a nice recipe for brussels sprouts. I added a little cayenne pepper along with the black pepper. Will make this one again for sure!

Love this method, have used many times with broccoli, but never brussels. I grew up on steamed brussels (yuk!), and due to that I never make them. This is such a refreshing change! I used walnut oil but didn't bother with the actual walnuts this time, and left out the parm. The other light flavours were perfect. If you're on the fence about trying should!!!
