I’ll be honest, Brussels sprouts are not my go-to vegetable. Other cruciferous veggies like cabbage and broccoli are awesome, but I never knew what to do with these little guys…
Enter my husband. He loves Brussels sprouts and has asked for them every now and then. He’s even tried making them a couple of times himself. I remember one of his experiments on the grill quickly turned into a molten mess.
Now that we’re into the peak season for the best-tasting Brussels sprouts, I figured it was time to step up and try a recipe for him. But, I would definitely need to spice things up a bit.
So I announced to my husband I was making Brussels sprouts with chorizo. He looked at me like I was crazy. Then he tasted it and gave me a big thumbs up! I figured if cabbage and hamburger go together, why not Brussels sprouts and chorizo?
While the Brussels sprouts were roasting in the oven, I browned the onions and chorizo. Slapped them together and voilà!
I know lots of paleo people love Brussels sprouts. They’re a good source of Vitamins A & C, potassium, folate, iron, fiber and phytonutrients.
This Brussels sprouts paleo recipe would make a great side dish for just about any meal. You can also add more of your favorite veggies, mix it up with the spicy chorizo, and turn this dish into a main course.
All of you Brussels sprout lovers will have to let me know what you think of this one. If you have a favorite recipe or tip for cooking them, let us know that too!
