"Mom, can I have more Brussels sprouts?"

For those of you who have small kids at home, the words of this blog title aren't often uttered. But honestly, I heard them this evening!

Almost all vegetables, no matter how they are prepared, are gluten free and dairy free. The big challenge lies in getting your kids (or yourself) to enjoy them! Besides plain steamed broccoli or asparagus with sea salt, this recipe is a hit in our home every time it's served:

Buttery Brussels Sprouts

Three big handfulls of Brussels sprouts
1 T. Bragg's Liquid Aminos or Tamari Gluten-Free Soy Sauce
1 T. Butter (or Nature's Balance Buttery Spread or olive oil)

Wash Brussells Sprouts, and remove any damaged outer leaves. Create a fresh cut on the stem end of each sprout, and make an "X" about 1/4" deep with a paring knife through the stem area. Place in steamer and steam 10 minutes, or until desired tenderness is reached. Place in serving bowl. Squeeze a splash of Bragg's and melt butter on top. Stir.

Serve immediately with confidence.
