Paleo Apple Pecan Brussels Sprouts Recipe
I love cooking my Brussels sprouts with bacon (recipe here), but I had cooked that same dish for several weeks already, and it was losing some of its appeal. So, I came up with a new fast and easy way of cooking Brussels sprouts.
I started off with cooking a few slices of bacon (chopped into bits), but you can skip this. I know bacon often gets a bad rap for being unhealthy, so check out this article for why bacon is Paleo but only if you search for the good bacon.
While the bacon was cooking, I chopped up a pound of Brussels sprouts, an apple, and some pecans
I added some more oil (olive or coconut) to the pan with the bacon (you can use bacon fat if you have enough of it). This article explains what to look for in a cooking oil, and why bacon fat, coconut oil, and olive oil are great options. Then I added the chopped Brussels sprouts, followed by the apples after 5 minutes, and then the pecans after another 5 minutes.
Cook until the Brussels sprouts are soft enough for your tastes. Season with salt to taste and serve.
Louise, Your site is a treasure of great recipes and
tonight I’ll reward myself with your apple pecan salad:) Me and my
husband just started out eating strict paleo and we’ve been
researching to find a solid meal plan and many people recommend the
“paleo recipe book,” reviewed on Tim’s blog
(timreviews.com/paleo-recipe). Do you have any experience or
opinion one that particular book with this? Thank you, Trâm
