Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Apple

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Apple

I’ve got a new side dish for you guys today, inspired by the lovely folks over at Cavemen Gourmet: Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Apple. Brussels sprouts, eh?  I’ve had friends tell me for years that Brussels sprouts, when prepared well, can be really tasty, and honestly, I thought they were all a little crazy.  Chalk it up to my changing tastes (or maybe the fact that they’re totally right), but I really liked this recipe.  The sweet/tart of the apple is a really nice balance to the sprouts.  Plus, it takes all of about 20 minutes to make. Total. Check out my version after the jump…

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Apple
Quantity:  6-8 servings
20 minutes (5 minutes prep, 10-15 minutes cooking)
Paleo Grade:
A+ (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegetarian-Friendly)
Vegetarian Adaptation: No changes needed… this one’s vegan!

Fresh Brussels Sprouts Ready to Be Prepped

  • 32 oz. Brussels sprouts; rinse, remove ends and any wilted leaves (you can halve them if you like)
  • 2 Fuji or Granny Smith apples (mix ’em if you like!), diced into 1/2″ cubes
  • 2 Tbs. coconut oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Heat coconut oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add in sprouts and season well with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add in apple chunks and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 5-7 more minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. That’s it! Once you’re happy with the texture of the sprouts, transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.
