Surprise! This is my first recipe blog post!
I’ve been meaning to do it for a while now, but never got around to it. I also wasn’t sure how it would go over with The Healing Codes theme I have going on here, but I couldn’t resist. These turned out so good! Plus I want to be here to support your healthy lifestyle in every way. Sooooooo…
I’m hoping you’ll love this easy healthy recipe.
I have first introduced to Brussels sprouts a few months ago and fell in love! I had never tried them before and for some reason, the thought of eating them grossed me out. Maybe it was the memories of the old rubbery looking steamed ones that kept me from experimenting. Yuck!
Well, I can say now, cooked right, these little guys are simply the tastiest veggie I’ve had in a long time.
I actually came up with cooking this recipe by total laziness.
I usually bake my Brussels Sprouts but that day I decided to just throw them shamelessly on the grill. I actually didn’t know if they would turn out very good. Lucky for me they did and I couldn’t help but post them here.
So here are the steps for making this delicious dish.
First, cut the end off the stem.
After I’m done trimming these little guys, I always save the leftovers. I’ll show you what I do with them at the end 😉
I have the perfect job for them.
Next, peel the outer layers.
Then you just cut them in half lengthwise.
Drizzle them with some cold pressed organic Olive oil.
Then I sprinkled my favorite Himalayan salt and toasted onion powder on top! They really make the difference!
Yummy looking and ready to go on the grill!
Next, throw those little suckers on the grill on medium heat.
Take a closer look 😉
You can see from the top picture how they end up!
Now you’re probably wondering what I did with the leftover scraps I saved in the beginning!
And they Loved It!
Although you cant tell by the weather in the pictures, its supposed to be spring here. We’ve actually had up 70 degree days off and on. Oh well, it has to level out at some point, right?
Hey, I almost forgot to add there are many special health benefits for eating these often. Many consider Brussels Sprouts a Superfood! Since I stand for creating a healthy lifestyle, I thought this list would be a great addition.

The imagery and word magic made me hungry Melissa …. well cooked.
Be good to yourself
You always put a smile on my face 😉
Grilled brussels sprouts and roasted in oven are so yummy! I discovered this awhile back from my sister and it’s a favorite in our household. Thanks for sharing this recipe as I always do them with salt and oil so it’s fun to learn a new way to try them!
I can’t believe I missed cooking these before. I am definitely going to be more experimental from now on. Hope you love them and thanks for stopping by!
Love Brussel sprouts Melissa and this looks like a great way to cook them. Just wish it were easier to get organic. It’s tricky around my part of the world.
If all you can find is regular it’s ok. I don’t always have that option either.
Thanks for being here 😉
Bunnies! I love them!! Thanks for sharing. Are they your pets? And I love Brussel sprouts, though I never did when I was a kid. These look great so I’ll have to try them out!!
The bunnies are not really pets. They are wild domestic but they know we give them food so they come around often. We’ve had so many disappear this year… very sad. We enjoy them while we can.
Hope you are doing well girl and thanks for visiting!
Lovely! I am a big fan of shredded cabbage and I can only droooooool over how these brussels sprouts might taste like. We don’t get it everywhere. Perhaps in some specialty stores. Although, if I did buy them, I doubt if they’ll get to the grill. I’d have eaten ’em all raw!
What a great first recipe post, Melissa. 😀 Looking forward to more. And I love what you did with the leftovers!
I’ve never heard of eating them raw. Are they good that way? I’ll have to try one and see.
I love seeing you here, thanks for stopping by.
These look so good! I’ve always wondered how to make brussel sprouts. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I hope you give it a try Betsy. I’ve got a couple other ways I do it that are a little more work but sooooo good. I’m crazy for these!
I loved the bunny surprise at the end. How sweet are they?!?!
I am going to try this recipe. Yummers!
Let me know how it goes Michelle. I would love to hear.
I’m glad you like the bunnies 😉
These look wonderful – and I had just bought brussel sprouts a few days ago, but wasn’t sure how I would cook them. Now I know what I’m making for supper tomorrow!
Those bunnies are adorable and the Brussels sprouts look outrageously good!
The sun is out and that means more grill time. So excited!
I will have to try these- not my fave vegetable but I can see how these could be yummy roasted to maybe with a little ginger and lemon, thanks for the inspiration x
I have another recipe that is even better. I didn’t really like them either, until I figured out the best way to cook them. It seems like a acquired taste at first and then you can’t live without them. So weird but good 😉
