Rice with Brussels Sprouts

To slice Brussels sprouts I remove the coarse outer leaves, cut them in half and slice into 1/4-inch slices, discarding the core. For this recipe I use Uncle Ben’s converted rice.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Makes: 2 servings

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt + pepper to taste


  1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, sauté onion & garlic for 1 minute.
  2. Stir in Brussels sprouts, rice, water, salt, and pepper.
  3. Bring to a boil.

      Yes, Vivian, you may add pine nuts. You’re a grownup. But seriously, that sounds yummy. Especially if you toast the nuts first.
