Paleo Shaved Brussel Sprouts with Golden Raisins

Paleo Shaved Brussel Sprouts with Golden Raisins:

(Serves 4 as side dishes)

*I honestly wish I could take credit for the idea of the golden raisins with the pan seared brussel sprouts, but I can’t. I drove home to be with my Dad this past weekend and had the best Daddy daughter weekend possible! It was just the two of us all weekend with my Mom out of town, and we had a blast. I am his twin and such a Daddy’s girl! Anyway, one of the many awesome meals we ate was at the country club, where they had these awesome brussel sprouts with golden raisins. We even ordered a second serving before dessert. Now that I am back at home, and hundreds of miles from the club, I recreated this recipe based on taste memory and they turned out just as good! This can be served as a side dish or even to eat a big bowl of by itself! Enjoy!

Ingredients:

-Coconut Oil nonstick cooking spray (Trader Joes, again, has a great one…other nonstick sprays will work as well)

-2 ½ cups (20oz.) shaved brussel sprouts

*Trader Joes now has bagged, organic, shaved, brussel sprouts….so awesome. If you don’t have a Trader Joes, simply wash and cut the stems off your brussel sprouts and place in a food processor and chop until the consistency of shaved/finely chopped brussel sprouts.

-4 Tbsp. sweet almond oil (found at Publix)

-2 Tbsp. honey

-3 to 4 tsp. salt (plus more to taste)

-2 tsp. black pepper (plus more to taste)

-1/2 cup organic golden raisins (found at Trader Joes for REALLY cheap…like less than $3.00 per cup!)

-1/2 cup water

Method:

  1. Spray a large skillet with nonstick spray. Place on the burner over medium-high heat and add the almond oil. Heat the oil for a minute and add the shaved brussels.
  2. Stir the brussels with the sweet almond oil until coated. Add your raisins once your brussels are about half way to lightly brown. Mix raisins and brussels, and cook until slightly golden.
  3. Mix in honey, salt, and pepper to taste and stir. Let cook for one minute and then add ½ cup water. Cover and let steam for another 3 to 4 minutes until tender.
  4. Serve warm and enjoy!
