So many of us resolve to eat more healthily each year.  I do try to feed my family nutritious, good food all year long. However, we still manage to get our share of junk food and often times dinner is order in pizza.

One of the ways I find to help my family want to eat food that is nutritious is by breaking out of the boredom rut.  My family loves Brussels Sprouts so I try to find different ways to serve them so that they don't get tired of them.  

I have served them roasted with apples and onions, turned them into slaw,  and mixed the with cranberries. For today's recipe I sliced them up, sauteed them with onions, thyme and garlic and then brightened them up with a splash of red wine vinegar.  They were a hit!!

  2. I love Brusssels Sprouts and this looks divine! I cannot wait to share the recipe with my husband. He's a big fan, too!

  3. Mmm, sauteeing with onion and butter might make me change my mind about Brussels Sprouts. Haha. Actually if they are prepared beyond just boiling frozen ones they are good, and so good for you.

  4. What simple, but yummy flavors in this side dish! I love brussels sprouts and am always looking for new ways to cook them!

  5. Wow this sounds so easy and delicious! As always, your recipes are so inspiring!

  7. This looks delicious! I'm a fan of Brussels sprouts too, but struggle to get through a whole bag because my OH won't eat them! I think cooked up this way, the sprouts would be good in a lunch wrap as well as a side dish :-)

  8. Brussels sprouts are so delicious. I wish we had these instead of the boiled ones I grew up with.

    1. That is the way I feel about asparagus Christie. I had only ever had mushy canned asparagus until I got married and started cooking on my own.
