I have never liked Brussels sprouts and called them “Bitter Balls”. My T & H on the other hand loves them, so I’ve been on a quest for the perfect recipe for Brussels sprouts. This one won the prize! Being so easy to make and crockpot-cooked helped a lot! Prep time is really easy, mainly just cleaning and quartering the sprouts and mincing the fresh garlic. Quartering the sprouts diminshes the bitter taste.
1. Trim and quarter Brussels sprouts that have been washed.
2. Toss the sprouts into your crockpot.
3. Next, mince garlic and toss in the minced garlic, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, butter, raisins, salt and pepper.
4. Pour the low sodium chicken broth over the ingredients and stir well to coat sprouts.
5. Cover and cook in the crock pot for 2 hours on high or 4 hours on low. Stir well before serving.
This is a stick-to-your-ribs, warm-you-up, side dish. This is not the conventional creamed spinach recipe that calls for tons of butter and cheese, it is low-fat and delicious. What is also great about this recipe is that it is a total “pantry” dish that is a quick go-to on a busy day.
