Garlic Braised Brussels Sprouts

Garlic Braised Brussels Sprouts



Garlic Braised Brussels Sprouts

Serves: 4


2 teaspoons Napa Valley organic olive oil
1/2 to 1 cup Pacific fat free chicken broth
3 cloves Garlic crushed
10 Brussels sprouts halved through the stem end
1/2 onion thinly sliced into half moons


Use a skillet with a lid that is just large enough to hold all the Brussels sprouts in a single layer, about a 10 inch diameter. Heat olive oil and 2 cup chicken broth over medium low heat in the skillet. Add garlic and cook until it begins to brown, about 1 minute. Remove as much garlic as you can with a slotted spoon.

Add the Brussels sprouts, cut side down and scatter the onion slices in between the sprouts. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook about 20 to 30 minutes until sprout stems are tender when pierced with a fork. Add more chicken broth as necessary so the pan does not get dry.
