1 bag of fresh brussel sprouts
1/4 cup roasted pecans
salt to taste
4 – 5  tablespoons earth balance butter spread or olive oil ( or combination of both)
1 small yellow onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
Fresh ground pepper

Roast pecans at 400 degrees until medium brown.  Wash brussel sprouts in a sink full of water and afterward “X” the bottom of each sprout with a knife and then cut in half length-wise.  Using a skillet or saute pan, add the earth balance buttery spread/olive oil to the pan and gently heat oil; then add chopped onions, garlic, salt, brussel sprouts and pecans and cook until brussel sprouts have some brown spots and are desired softness.  (You can place a bit of water in the pan with a lid, if your brussel sprouts are still too hard but only after you’ve achieved brown spots on the sprouts).

Bon Appetit!
