Throw your Brussels out on the grill instead of cooking them in the pan and you will love the results!
1 pound brussels sprouts (small to medium size work best)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Cook the brussels sprouts al dente they can be cooked by either boiling them in a pot of water, steaming in a pyrex dish in an half inch of water, or even quicker, put them in a Glad® Simply Cooking™ Microwave Steaming Bag and heat on high for about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat a barbecue grill or large pan and soak 5-6 wooden skewers. Cool the brussels sprouts rapidly by putting them in a strainer under running cold water or throw them in a pot of cold water. Dry them and add them to 6 skewers (about 6-8 brussels sprouts per skewer.) Mix the olive oil lemon juice and garlic powder in a small dish and add it to the brussels sprouts- using a brush to coat them works the best. Heat them for 3-5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Add salt and pepper if desired.
