Warm Brussels Spouts Salad

In continuing the no-grains, no-sugar theme, I've been looking for recipes that fit the bill... and it's difficult! There are a lot of recipes that look really good, except there's a tablespoon of flour or a tsp of honey, or some other ingredient that disqualifies the recipe.  I was excited to find this one -- first, because of the no-sugar/no-grains criteria, but also because it adds nuts! I enjoy walnuts, and they're a simple, tasty addition to this simple recipe.

Warm Brussels Sprouts Salad
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:
1 lb Brussels sprouts, stalk ends trimmed and dry outer leaves removed
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
juice of one lemon
1/2 cup chopped, toasted walnuts

Directions:
Using slicing blade of a food processor, or a sharp knife, thinly slice Brussels sprouts an eighth of an inch thick.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add garlic and cook until fragrant but not brown, 1 minute.  Add the sliced Brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat in oil.  Cook 3 minutes until heated through and slightly wilted, but not brown, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice and walnuts.  Toss to combine and transfer to serving plate.

Enjoy!
