Now that, we are working from home, full-time, I am constantly thinking about quick and easy nibbles for during the day.  I don’t want to spend more than an hour, preparing and eating lunch, when I am busy at my desk.  This recipe is perfect as we can even nibble at our desks while working.

We have been in Brussels Sprouts heaven the past couple weeks as OceanMist recently surprised us with a package box full of fresh Brussels Sprouts to work on some new recipes.  Lucky for you this is only one of the new recipes that I will be sharing over the course of the next couple weeks.  I love how quick and easy this recipe comes together to make a light lunch/snack or even a great side dish;  we also enjoyed it with a roasted chicken.

When we were both kids, on separate coasts, we were not fans of the Brussels Sprouts.  We are pretty sure it was because they were boiled or steamed until pasty green.  As adults, we love them!  Not only are sprouts little bites of fun, they are also very good for us.  Brussels Sprouts are a member of the cruciferous family, and they contain large amounts of antioxidants, vitamin C and beta-carotene;  they have even been found to help reduce the risk of certain cancers.  The nice thing, they can be found year-round, so eat up!!
