Brussel Sprouts with Goji Berries

These tender brussel sprouts from Vancouver’s local farmers market are delicious when sauteed with bacon from BC’s Gelderman Farms and deglazed with coconut water. Toss in a handful or two of bright, antioxidant-rich goji berries a couple minutes before serving for a refreshing and exotic super-food holiday side-dish.

  • 1 stalk fresh, local brussel sprouts
  • 2-3 pieces bacon
  • 1 can (330ml) coconut water
  • 1/2 – 3/4 c dried goji berries
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • parmesan flakes

Slice bacon and saute until slightly browned, add brussel sprouts and saute a couple minutes. Deglaze with 1/2 of the coconut water and allow to reduce, add remaining coconut water depending on how firm you like your brussel sprouts. Add the goji berries about 5 minutes before you remove from heat, season to taste.

Before serving, using a peeler peel flakes of parmesan cheese add about 1/2 c to the sprouts and allow to melt. Use remaining cheese flakes as a garnish when serving.
