  • 4 cup(s) Brussels sprouts (about 1 pound for 4 servings)
  • 1/2 cup(s) almonds slivered (or nuts of choice)
  • 4 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ginger fresh and grated
  • 2 teaspoon(s) lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon(s) coconut aminos (tastes like soy sauce)


  1. Add 1 inch of water to the bottom of a medium pot with a steamer insert or basket. Add brussels to steamer, cover, and cook over medium-high heat for 10-12 minutes, or until just tender and bright green.
  2. Meanwhile, dry roast the almonds in a small skillet over low heat. Stir constantly and remove from heat when they begin to brown. NOTE: watch and stir constantly, as they can burn easily.
  3. Combine the olive oil, ginger root, lemon juice and coconut aminos in a small bowl. When brussels are fully cooked, toss with dressing and top with toasted almonds.
