Steamed Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower

Steamed Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower with Walnuts

Brussels sprouts are a great source of fiber while walnuts provide a bit of protein as a part of a complete meal.

Steamed Brussels Sprouts
  • 6 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 2 1/4 cups trimmed Brussels sprouts (about 1 pound), halved
  • 3 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Place walnuts in a small skillet over medium heat; cook 3 minutes or until walnuts are lightly browned, shaking pan frequently. Remove from heat.
Steam Brussels sprouts, covered, 10 minutes or until tender. Add cauliflower to pan; steam, covered, 2 minutes or just until tender. Drain. Combine Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, salt, pepper, and juice in a medium bowl; toss to combine. Sprinkle evenly with walnuts.
