Brussels sprouts with ginger and almonds

Ok, this is the time of year when any recipe that I present to you, someone could turn up their noses. I know it because my partner in this period often distort his nose 🙂 Brussels sprouts then, tendentially bitter and very very green, are not appreciated almost by anyone. Fortunately I was born with a visceral love for the whole cruciferous family; broccoli, cabbage, sprouts … sautéed in a pan with garlic, oil and hot pepper are the top! <3 Brussels sprouts with ginger and almonds in my opinion can become a surprise even for those who have never had the courage to taste them.
The recipe is so simple that it would not even serve. Just a pack of sprouts, fresh ginger, almonds and you’re done.

Brussels sprouts are rich in minerals, vitamins, proteins and carbohydrates. They are useful for counteracting anemia, improving concentration and attention.

Brussel sprouts are used mostly for preparation of first course dishes and for filling rustic pies. Steam cooking at low temperatures is recommended to ensure full nutrients. If desired they can also be eaten raw in salads.
