Bra Bra Brassicas …….the joy of being a Brussels Sprout!

Some love these cute, baby looking cabbages! Others just can’t stand them! Well ! I love them and today tried them with nigella seeds , red chili flakes , lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil.


The kitchen always teaches some amazing life lessons. You may be making your brussels sprouts a particular way. Why not make a CHANGE !

For Sharing with 4

1 # or so of Brussels sprouts, cut into quarters
1 /2 teaspoon of nigella seeds
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 teaspoon or more of red chili flakes
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt to taste

Heat the oil in a pan. Medium heat.
Add nigella seeds and chili flakes. Toast for about half a minute. Add the sprouts. Sauté . Cover and cook for about 8-10 minutes.

Don’t over cook. They should be just fork tender. Season and finish with a dash of lemon juice.

A small but daring change in the kitchen creates a freshness in the mind !
