Beer Brussels Sprouts

Celebrate St. Patrick's day with a simple side dish -- Brussels sprouts cooked in beer.

When you think of St. Patrick's Day, what comes to mind? The color green? Beer? Leprechauns? Well, this recipe has St. Paddy's Day written all over it. These Brussels sprouts are doused in beer to give them a savory, hoppy taste (made with gluten-free beer so if you have a gluten sensitivity you can still enjoy them). I love roasting and steaming veggies to get food on the table fast, but I decided to create this recipe on the stovetop. You can also toss all of the ingredients into a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F if you prefer to roast them. There are only 5 pantry staples in this recipe so you'll have these sprouts on the table with minimal effort.

Wash and trim the ends of the Brussels sprouts.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the Brussels sprouts in the pan; add sea salt, pepper, turmeric and beer. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, or until tender.
