Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 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
  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. :)
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.
