Brussels Sprouts With Pomegranate and Pistachios


                  I have never met a vegetable that I did not like. Are you on the Brussels Sprout
           band-wagon? I hope so. I wouldn't want you to be missing out on some healthy and
           wonderful little cabbages. I could sit and eat an entire pan of these. Try them out -
           and you will be a brussels sprouts fan just like me.

                                         Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate and Pistachios

         one bag - brussels sprouts
         1 small onion, diced
         1/2 cup chicken broth
         2 tablespoon olive oil
         2 tablespoons butter
         salt and pepper
         2-3 tablespoons brown sugar
         pomegranate seeds
         1/2 cup pistachios - toasted
         
         1) Prep your brussel sprouts and heat the pan with oil. Place sprouts & onion in oil
         and cook for about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Stir in the broth and continue to
         cook until tender. Put in the butter and brown sugar in and melt. Serve when tender
         but not over cooked. Place in a serving dish and top with pomegranate seeds & nuts.
         NOTE - Crumbled bacon on top would be a great addition. YUM
