Delicious Brussels Sprouts

I found these great brussels sprouts yesterday at a health food store near my daughter's home.

Wash them in cool water and take off the very outer leaves.

Parboil them for 5 minutes or so, then plunge them into cold water. This helps them to retain their green coloring. Then I cooked them over medium heat in a large skillet with sesame oil, organic tamari, pepper, and parsley flakes. You be the judge on how much of each you add, I usually just keep tasting.

The pasta on the side is penne with olive oil, Daiya vegan cheese, and garlic.
