Sauteed Brussels Sprouts and Carrots

sauteed brussels sprouts and carrots

In this quick and easy side dish, the carrots and Brussels sprouts are lightly sauteed in butter, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. I told you, it is very easy and simple. All you need is just 5 ingredients and no more than 10 minutes. Most of the weeknights I don’t spend much time to prepare sides. It doesn’t take much to turn two regular vegetables into a delicious side dish that is not bland and boring.

I like to eat brussels sprouts this way because their buttery flavors go really well with the sweetness of the carrots. So delicious. Can’t get enough especially when they’re in season from late fall to early spring. When you buy Brussels sprouts choose fresh, green, crisp-looking Brussels sprouts and be careful not to overcook them, which releases the sulfur smell that deters many from trying this vegetable.

This is also one of the first recipes I cooked in my brand new 11″ cast iron skillet which my husband gave me for my birthday last month. I had been looking at this large Le Creuset skillet for a while and was so surprised and excited that he got it for me. I didn’t even suspect that he knew I had laid eyes on it. I am reminded again what a thoughtful and loving husband I have! 🙂 I am looking forward to cooking many of his favorite as well as new delicious meals in my new favorite skillet.
