Last week I picked up a bag of beautiful brussels that I couldn’t wait to make for dinner. Now, most of the time I like to slice them super thin and make a fresh salad out of them, but this time I felt like something a bit more exciting, and quite frankly – warmer.  It’s been a cold week here in Boston – which ruined all my dreams of a warm spring.

But the sun finally came out again, so fear not. Warmth is on its way!

FIRST: Wash and cut your brussels in half or in quarters. I like to cut them in quarters since it’s easier to eat and it allows more warmth all around.

SECOND: Add your spice!

For Christmas my mom bought be a GIANT Costco size container of Montreal Steak Seasoning but despite its name, this jar of spice wonders pairs well with just about ANY vegetable. I know this because I sprinkled a dash of it on almost everything I ate this winter. But be careful, a little bit goes a long way.

THIRD: Place your beautifully spiced brussels in a large frying pan or wok with a small amount of coconut oil and place the flame on medium heat. Toss the brussels until the outside feels nice and warm to the touch. Even if the outside of your brussels gets a bit hot, it’ll take a while for the inside temp to rise above 115º F. But do be careful to not coot them too long in order to preserve their raw nutrients.

LASTLY: Plate with your favorite cooked or sprouted grains or place on top a a salad and enjoy!
