Quick and Easy Brussels Sprouts Recipes
A couple of shopping tips before you get started, look for brussels sprouts that are on the smaller size and tightly closed. The tiny ones cook through quickly, whereas larger ones tend to brown on the outside long before the insides are done.
Cream-Braised Brussels Sprouts


  • 1¼ lb Brussels Sprouts
  • 3 tbsp unsalted Butter
  • ¼ tsp Coarse Sea Salt, plus more to taste
  • 300 ml Heavy Cream
  • 1 tbsp fresh Lemon juice, or more to taste
  • Cut out the stem end of each sprout and pull off all the coarse outer leaves. Piece the sprouts in small sections from stem end to tip.
  • Take a large skillet (about 12-inch), melt the butter and add Brussels sprouts and salt to it. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes until the sprouts are nicely browned in spots.
  • Add cream and stir well and then cover the pot. Reduce the heat to medium low.
  • Braise the sprouts for about 30-35 minutes until they are tender enough to be pierced easily with the tip of a paring knife.
  • Stir in lemon juice and add seasoning to taste. Serve immediately.
Brussels Sprouts With Grapes


  • 2 lb Brussels Sprouts, trimmed and scored
  • 500 ml Water
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 50 ml Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 2 bunches Green onions, chopped
  • 200 grams seedless Red Grapes, halved
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • Heat the brussels sprouts, water and salt in a saucepan and bring to boil. Boil for a few minutes until sprouts are tender but firm.
  • Over medium low heat, mix olive oil, crushed garlic and green onions in a saucepan. Slowly cook and stir for 5 minutes, until the green onions are soft.
