I was a bit nervous reintroducing brussel sprouts to my daughter after she had a negative experience. So, I decided to use two ingredients in my preparation I knew are universally popular with toddlers; lemon juice and honey. Not only did she eat all of her's the first time I prepared them, she began stealing ones off my plate.
1 lb brussel sprouts
1 tbs brown mustard
1 tbs honey
2 tbs lemon juice
1/2 tbs minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine the honey, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper to make the marinade.
2. Cut each of the brussel sprouts into quarters.
3. Toss the brussel sprouts in the marinade and place in the fridge for a minimum of an hour though overnight is best. If necessary, you can cook just a portion of the brussel sprouts at a time and keep the remainder in the fridge for up to 3 days.
4. Saute the brussel sprouts in olive oil until they are slightly crisp
