1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts, washed, trimmed and cut in half

1 small yellow onion, peeled and chopped

1 tablespoon ghee

Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste


Step 1: Place a steamer basket in a large pot with a lid and fill with water until it reaches the bottom of the basket. Place the pot on the stove and bring the water to a boil. Add the Brussels sprouts to the pot, cover and steam for 2 to 3 minutes or until bright green and fork tender.

Step 2: In a large skillet, warm the ghee over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté until they become translucent.

Step 3: Add the steamed Brussels sprouts and toss with the onions. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper to taste, and continue to cook on medium-high heat until the Brussels sprouts turn slightly brown, about 4-5 minutes.

Step 4: Remove from heat and serve.


This warm, nurturing dish features one of my favorite veggies – Brussels sprouts – which are rich in many nutrients including vitamins C and K, some B vitamins and more. Serve it up with your favorite protein.
