Basil Brussels Sprouts

A simple side dish that takes advantage of the microwave, so you can focus on the main course. Brussels sprouts are tossed with melted butter, basil, salt and pepper for mild flavor that complements most any entree.


4 servings


2 pounds brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
3 tablespoons water
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon pepper


Place the brussels sprouts and water in a 2-quart microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Combine the butter, salt, basil and pepper; drizzle over brussels sprouts and toss to coat.
