1 lb. fresh brussel sprouts – trim ends, remove outer damaged leaves, cut in half and steam till tender but still bright green
extra virgin olive oil
fresh grind sea salt
fresh grind black pepper
1/3 c. Ball Park Mustard
2 T. veg mayo (I used Grapeseed Vegenaise)
Heat large skillet over medium heat. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil into skillet, roll the skillet to coat bottom, then place each brussel sprout half, cut-side down onto skillet. Cook till charred, then flip spouts.
Sprinkle with smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Toss to coat, cook a couple more minutes then remove from skillet.
Serve with a side of mustard mixed with veg mayo as a dipping sauce.
Notes: These charred sprouts make a perfect hors d’oeuvre or side dish vegetable. If served as an hors d’oeuvre provide toothpicks.
