Caramelized Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Serves 2-4, adapted from Eat.Live.Run
1 lb brussels sprouts
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
sea salt, to taste
2 tbsp maple sugar or brown sugar
1/4 cup dried cranberries
  1. Slice the brussels sprouts very thinly so that they are almost feathery.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet.  Saute the garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds.  Add the brussels sprouts and continue sauteeing for 4-5 minutes or until bright green and tender.
  3. Add the sea salt and sugar and toss together.  Finish by adding the cranberries.
