It's my mission to eat more greens & brussels sprouts are one of my favorites.
And this is my new favorite way to prepare them :
Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.
As that gets warmed up, chop your sprouts. The smaller you chop them the better. I get them all into eigths unless they're tiny.
Toss the sprouts into the pan and add a bit more olive oil. Stir them up and sprinkle with pepper and garlic salt. This is an add to taste situation - I use a ton of both.
Let them cook for about 5 minutes then add broken up unseasoned pecans. I put about a handful in.
Stir the pecans with the sprouts and continue to cook for about 5 more minutes - maybe 10. I like my sprouts pretty well cooked though and usually try one to make sure they're good to go.
Right before you turn off the heat, sprinkle with a big pinch of shaved parmesan cheese.
Turn off the heat and stir in the parmesan.
Throw on a plate and enjoy!
