Recipe: Easy Lemon & Garlic Brussel Sprouts

This holiday season, I’ve been experimenting with new recipes, and yesterday on Christmas I tried out a new recipe for brussel sprouts. The recipe was inspired by a recipe I found on Clean & Delicious, and the best part about it is how easy it is! It takes less than 10 minutes and requires only six ingredients – brussel sprouts, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper – most of which I already had at home. For the holidays I also added butter, but it’s not necessary if you want to keep the meal a bit healthier. Try out the recipe below and enjoy!

 brussel sprouts


  • 1 lb. of brussel sprouts, stemmed and quartered
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (and/or 1 tbsp butter)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place brussel sprouts in a steamer basket and cook for 5-6 minutes or until they are al dente (tender on the outside but firm in the middle).
  • Toss brussel sprouts with garlic, lemon and olive oil. You can also add in or substitute the olive oil with butter.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Enjoy! Serves 4 as a side dish.
