Brussel Sprout Leaves

A favorite green of mine is brussels sprouts.

I so did not like them when I was a kid and here I am pretty much craving them on a regular basis. So I figured; let’s try something new. So I cut and peeled them so I could try sautéing the leaves instead of roasting them whole.


  • Brussels Sprouts – estimate about 3-4 whole per person
  • Dried orange peel
  • Pine-nuts

Serves 1-many


Cut the bottom off to peel the leaves of the Brussels sprouts. You have to keep cutting a little bit off  to be able to keep peeling.

Add a dash of sea salt and dried orange peel

Sautée for 3 min. in just a little oil while still wet from washing

Serve with pine nuts
