Lemon Zest Brussels Sprouts

In an act of desperation, meaning I had minimal food in my fridge, I threw together this gem.  I was so hungry when I woke up from a double session of workouts the night before and too lazy to go to the store this is what happened.

Contents of my fridge:

  • Brussels Sprouts on the stalk
  • almond milk
  • 3 strips of bacon
  • lemons
  • gallon of water
  • various condiments

I decided to chop up the bacon and pan fry it, shave the brussels on my mandolin(here). After the bacon was done frying I threw in the shaved sprouts, salt and pepper and the juice of half a lemon.  I sautéed until the sprouts were just starting to wilt.  When finished cooking I garnished with lemon zest.

It was actually pretty amazing.  I think some of my best meals are made by accident.  This will be a staple in my side-dish repertoire.
