Brussel Sprouts are one of my favourite vegetables, you either love them or loathe them. I even ate them as a kid! There are so many different ways to cook them now. I remember as a kid they were always very soft. Now I am all grown up, LOL! I like them with some crunch and my Sautéed Brussel Sprouts & Beans have got that.


500g green beans, trimmed
500g Brussel sprouts
2 T coconut oil
4 spring onions
Juice 1/2 lemon 
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, lightly toasted 


Blanch the beans in boiling water for 2 mins until tender. Then put beans into cold water to stop the cooking process. We want them to be crunchy!

Thinly slice the Brussel sprouts.

Melt the coconut oil in a large deep-frying pan add the Brussel sprouts and beans stir over heat for 3 – 4 minutes.

I like a little bit of colour on my greens, not burnt though. Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.

Top with spring onions and sunflower seeds.

Be Well



This side dish also would be great for breakfast substituting the salad for Poached Eggs & Salad!
