Here is how I steam my Brussel sprouts!


  • Frozen or fresh Brussel sprouts
  • Seasoning of your choice
  • Steaming basket


Allow your Brussel sprouts to thaw on the countertop for about 5 minutes. I use the frozen pack from Trader Joe’s, but if time permits I suggest you use fresh ones and trim them yourself!

Boil some hot water as you wait. Place your Brussel sprouts into a steam basket and steam for approximately 10 minutes.

I love to season the Brussel sprouts with a little bit of salt and pepper and serve it with brown rice sprinkled with furikake seasoning. Furikake makes any bland dish into a work of art! I also enjoy eating it as a side dish to any of my entrees like my tomato pasta or kimbap.

I highly recommend that you give Brussels sprouts a try if you have never eaten them before! If you found this post helpful, please like and share!

Happy munching!
