Recipe by Big Tastebuds
READY IN: 15mins




  • Rinse and chop the hard ends off the brussels sprouts. Cut each brussels sprout in half, then, with flat surfaces down, sliver each brussels sprout into three to five parts. If you're running low on time, leave brussels sprouts whole and steam them while you are preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  • Using a food processor or a knife, roughly chop almonds so that pieces are no smaller than corn kernels.
  • Using a peeler, peel several strips of rind off a carefully washed lemon. Mince strips.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Once fully melted but not smoking, add almonds, lemon rind, and plain bread crumbs. Sautee until golden brown.
  • Add brussels sprouts to pan with a dribble of water, olive oil, or a mixture of the two so ingredients do not burn. Cover pot and check every couple of minutes, stirring each time, until the brussels sprouts are a bright green. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to your taste.
