Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3-4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1.5 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • Kosher Salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 1-1/4 cup stock chicken, or vegetable stock
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temp
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese to garnish
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Trim the base and remove any yellow or damaged leaves of Brussels sprouts.
  • Wash the Brussels sprouts under cold running water, then pat dry with a paper towel. Cut the Brussels sprouts into half.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and heat until shimmering. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  • Stir in Brussels sprouts, salt, and pepper. Cook without stirring too much, until sprouts turn golden brown in spots, 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside on a plate.
  • Into the same pan pour in the broth and bring to a gentle simmer.
  • Add in the cream cheese; simmer for 3-4 minutes, whisking constantly until creamy and thickened.
  • Return the Brussels sprouts back into the pan, and continue to cook until tender. About 5-7 minutes. Check doneness with a fork.
  • Take off the heat and sprinkle with parmesan and freshly chopped parsley.

Notes

  • Preferably use fresh Brussel sprouts. You may use frozen but allow it to thaw completely and drain before using.
  • Oil: You may use any oil or butter 
  • Garlic: Using fresh garlic is preferred. If you need to substitute with garlic powder use one tablespoon.
  • Stock/broth: Use either chicken or vegetable stock.
  • Cream Cheese: You can use low-fat or fat-free cream cheese.
  • Parmesan Cheese: Freshly grated will give you the best flavor but you may use store-bought.
