80 calories/serving


10 Brussels sprouts, whole or cut in half 260 g
1/2 tbsp olive oil 8 mL
1/3 cup water 85 mL
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated 3 g
1 tbsp bread crumbs [optional] 8 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g


  1. Prepare the vegetables: cut the larger ones in half so they won't take longer to cook than the smaller ones.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the sprouts to the pan and cook 2 min, with stirring, then pour in the water, cover, and simmer until the sprouts are almost tender, 5 to 7 min. Uncover, add a little salt, then simmer until the water evaporates completely, about 7 min.
  3. Add the grated cheese and bread crumbs then serve.

A tasty alternative to just boiling and eating them. They need to be fried a little longer than the recipe says.

Especially delicious with the juices from the "Saltimbocca alla Romana"! I poured the juices over the sprouts while they were still in the pan. There were also juices that seeped out of the beef and prosciutto onto the plate while I let them sit. YUM. I tasted them before I added the juice, though, and I liked them that way too. I'm shocked! I would definitely make this again! :)
