creamed Brussels sprouts

It wasn’t until I went Paleo that I tried Brussels Sprouts again.  My first memory of the vegetable are not pleasant.  In fact, I gagged when I tried to eat it the first time.   Then two years ago Mr. Bejelly and I went to one of our favorite seafood restaurants and the side dish was Brussels sprouts.  I didn’t realize it when I took the first bite but oh man they were good.  I went home and decided I had to have them again and came up with this sinfully delicious recipe.   It’s super simple and to be honest, your Brussels sprouts will not be the gorgeous green color in the photo.  They will be more slightly gray in color but don’t worry, your taste buds won’t know.  Now that Brussels Sprouts are in season we will have this paleo vegetable dish once a week.

  1. I love brussel sprouts, but they have to be cooked right and that is a task in and of itself LOL. I am definitley going to have to try this recipe.

  2. We adore brussels sprouts now (as adults) but because I fix them much differently than the boiled, mushy variations of our childhood.

    This sounds so good.

    And, p.s., I have been stalking your site this weekend. My husband and I have decided to try a 30 day Paleo run… it’s something that makes sense for me (given some certain health issues) and we’re wanting a good way to clean up our eating.

    1. Oh my gosh, how exciting!! If you need any help or have questions please email me! I’m not an expert or anything but I’m happy to chat and point you in the right direction. I won’t lie, I weaned myself off grains because I had so much brain fog when I first went Paleo plus other things that popped up on the diet.
