Pan-fried Brussels Sprouts with Piima Cream

brusselssprouts

This is one of my all-time favorite ways to serve brussels sprouts.   Even non-sprout lovers should enjoy this dish.   The piima cream is a perfect foil to the crisp sprouts and nuts.   This recipe serves 4.   I love the underdogs of the vegetable world: turnips, beets and brussels sprouts in particular.   Brussels sprouts, like other cruciferous vegetables, are rich in the cancer fighting indole-3-carbinols.   This brussels sprouts recipe is one that even brussels sprouts haters will love – plus it’s covered in probiotic piima cream.   Piima is a Scandinavian yogurt that cultures at room temperature.

You can purchase piima from Cultures for Health or check out the Cultures and Starters Exchange.

      Oh, Brussels sprouts are my favorite cruciferous vegetable. Except for kale. And maybe broccoli.

      Anyway, this sounds lovely and I can’t wait to try it.
