1 pound Brussels sprouts, as uniform in size as
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
*Cook's Note: In order to facilitate
even cooking, it is important that the Brussels sprouts be as uniform in size
and shape as possible.
Heat a grill to medium.
Cut off the stem end of the Brussels
sprouts and remove any yellowing outer leaves. Place the Brussels sprouts into
a large, microwave safe mixing bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 3
minutes. Add the olive oil, garlic, mustard, paprika and salt and toss to
combine. Allow the sprouts to cool until you can handle them. Skewer 4 to 5
Brussels sprouts onto each metal skewer with the stem ends facing in the same
direction, leaving at least 1/2-inch in between each sprout. Place the skewers
onto the grill with stem end closest to the flame. Cover and cook for 5
minutes. Turn the skewers over and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.
Serve as is or for additional flavor, remove the sprouts from the skewers,
return them to the original mixing bowl and toss with any of the remaining oil
and garlic mixture before serving.
Hello, I'm Arrion. Four weeks ago I began sharing my meals on Facebook to help me keep track of my eating habits and to share them with others. Call me crazy but I was reading an
article that suggested I keep a photo diary of the food I ate during the
day. So I took it a step further and began adding snapshots of my meals to my news
feed on Facebook. It was also an accountability thing. Let the "world" know
what I'm eating and maybe I'll be more selective of my foods. It got very popular among some of my Facebook friends so I decided to start blogging about it. I have lost 20 pounds so far. I hope this helps others on their journey as well. This is my very first blog EVER so bare with me and offer suggestions to help! Thanks for reading.
