    Rather than boiling, I steamed the brussels sprouts in the microwave for 2-1/2 minutes. Nice recipe and very easy.  -  24 Mar 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The flavor was very mild. but it was good. I will be making this recipe again with a teaspoon of lemon juice. cooking the sprouts longer to make them a bit more tender. Thanks, Happy Cooking!  -  12 Aug 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
