Featured Recipe: Brussel sprouts with mushroom sauce
- 1 pound brussels sprouts or broccoli, cabbage, kale, collards, or turnips
- 1 cup chicken broth, low sodium
- 2 tsp. lemon juice
- 2 tsp. spicy brown mustard
- 1 tsp. dried thyme
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms
Trim Brussels sprouts and cut in half. Steam until tender—about 6 to 10 minutes, or microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes. Bring the broth to a boil in a nonstick pot. Mix in the lemon juice, mustard, and thyme. Add the mushrooms. Boil until the broth is reduced by half, about 5 to 8 minutes. Add the Brussels sprouts. Toss well to coat with the sauce.
