Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Having such incredible health benefits and being available in most grocery stores, there is no reason brussels sprouts are not be found more often on our dinner menus.  With their anti cancer, anti inflammatory and antioxidant powers, you will not regret adding these tasty cruciferous to your diet.

Cooking brussels sprouts is quick and easy and makes it a perfect after work meal.

For this recipe you will need:
brussels sprouts
salt, pepper, paprika, and turmeric to taste
avocado oil

I did not put any measures in the ingredient list- you can put as much of each ingredient as you want and you won't go wrong.

Cut brussels sprouts in halves and steam for about 6-7 minutes.  If you don't have a steamer, you can just boil them in water.  

While the brussels sprouts are cooking, cut up some good smoked bacon and fry it until crispy or to your own liking.

Add oil and minced garlic and sauté with bacon for 5 minutes.  I use avocado oil for cooking but you can use any oil you want.  Coconut oil also works well for cooking.  

Add brussels sprouts and season with spices.  Mix it around so they get coated evenly with spices.  Continue sautéing for about 10 minutes.

 Serve warm.

This dish makes good leftovers and it great the next days as well.
