Organic Brussels Sprouts Sautéed with Bacon
fresh, organic brussels sprouts
(can substitute frozen)
Freshly ground black pepper
dried dill weed
(or 1/2 teaspoon fresh, to taste)
Prepare Brussels sprouts by washing and trimming off the ends. Remove any wilted or damaged outer leaves.
Steam them for 5 minutes or until they are just tender. Drain well.
Slice the bacon into 1/2-inch strips. Add to a frying pan and cook until they done, but not crispy.
Add the Brussels sprouts, dill, and fennel seed to the pan and cook on medium-high for another 5-8 minutes, or until some of the sprouts are just starting caramelize. Season with black pepper.
Add sea salt to taste, remove from pan, and serve.
