Vegetable Dishes: Here are our recipes for Brussels Sprouts . Greens & Garlic

Greens with Garlic

Use Arugula, Rapini, Spinach, Chard or BeetGreens - Serves 2



  1. In a saute pan, heat the oil with the garlic and mustard seeds until the garlic is almost caramelized. (Watch those mustard seeds; they pop. I use one of those screens.)
  2. Add the greens and cook covered, just until wilted.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

This is wonderful with steak and baked potatoes. I prefer arugula or rapini but some people find them to be too bitter.

Brussels Sprouts

brussels sprouts



  1. Choose Brussels sprouts that are uniform in size and tightly closed at the stem. Cut the bottoms off of each sprout, trim away any discoloured outside leaves and cut an X in the bottom.
  2. Steam sprouts until almost done. Rinse with cold water to arrest cooking. Cut each sprout in half.
  3. Sauté garlic in butter (or olive oil) until just golden. Remove from pan and set aside.
  4. Toss sprouts in the pan with the melted butter til they are browned a little on the edges. Put the garlic back in the pan and add bread crumbs. Stir well.

This dish is brilliant with roast chicken, or ham, or pork chops, or pasta fagiole or....

based on a recipe in November2003 issue of SAVEUR magazine The magazine suggested throwing in a bit of lemon juice but we didn't have any lemons so left it out. Every time we've made this dish, we just haven't bothered with the lemon juice because it's so good just as it is.
