Balsamic Brussel Sprouts & Strawberries


A mouth-watering take on healthy brussels sprouts. Pan-seared with seasonings, strawberries, and balsamic, each bite is full of delightful flavors.

2 lb. brussels sprouts
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 – 2 cup fresh strawberries
1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Wash strawberries, remove stems, and slice into quarters.
In a medium bowl, mix berries and corresponding ingredients together and set aside.

Chop the stalks off of the brussels sprouts and remove outer leaves.
Wash thoroughly, making sure to remove dirt and debris. Brussels sprouts have a tendency to hide the nitty-gritty!

Chop sprouts in half lengthwise.

Heat 2 tbsp. of oil in a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat.
Place sprouts cut-side down. Sear for 6-8 minutes.

While searing, sprinkle with garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper. Add lemon juice.

After 6-8 minutes have passed, stir and continue to sauté for another 8-10 minutes.

Add strawberries and sauté for 5-7 more minutes, being careful not to overcook the berries. Taste test one of the sprouts to make sure that they are tender.
