Brussels Sprouts are a great source of vitamins and minerals. This recipe calls for steamed Brussels Sprouts that are marinated. The marinade is mild and gives them a little bit of flavor. It’s a great crunchy snack, appetizer, or side to a meal.  Definitely a good and healthy alternative to chips.

2 pounds fresh Brussels Sprouts
1/2 cup organic cold pressed olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon himalayan sea salt
1 teaspoon ground pepper

Look for Brussels Sprouts that are similar in size. Add enough water in a large pot to reach the bottom of the steamer basket. Add the steamer basket and bring water to a boil, then reduce to a strong simmer. While you’re waiting for the water to heat rinse the Brussels Sprouts well in a colander. Trim off ends and remove any maimed or loose outer leaves. Cut the Brussels Sprouts in half from bottom to top. Add the Brussels Sprouts to your pot and cover, start checking for tenderness after 10 minutes. 2 pounds of medium sized sprouts usually takes about 20 minutes for me, but time may vary. Cook until they are just barely tender. While the Brussels Sprouts are cooking, whisk together all other ingredients. After the Brussels are finished cooking, mix with the whisked ingredients and refrigerate.  Stir every once and awhile, enjoy after two days of refrigeration. Omit the honey and replace with sugar for a truly vegan recipe.
