Ingredients
  • 1 pound ( about 500g ) Brussels sprouts
  • ½ can cooked white beans, rinsed and drained
  • a handful of almond flakes
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • a splash of sesame oil
  • a splash of fresh lemon/lime
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Wash the Brussels sprouts very well, trim the nubby ends and any discolored leaves off them and cut them in halves lengthwise. Bring ¾ to 1 inch of water to a boil in a medium saucepan and put an Asian bamboo steamer on top. Put the Brussels sprouts in the steamer, cover and let them steam for approximately 3 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of butter in a second saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the sprouts and sauté until they get a bit browned. Then reduce the heat to a lower level, add the white beans, almond flakes and cayenne pepper and drizzle that splash of sesame oil. Let them simmer, stirring occasionally, for 3 more minutes. Season carefully with sea salt and pepper and squeeze a bit of lemon juice/lime juice. Ready to be served in such a short time. :)
Notes
If you don't like almond flakes, then you might use raw almonds or your favorite choice instead.

For a slightly sweet touch, add a handful of raw raisins.
