Brussel Sprouts with Goji Berries


These tender brussel sprouts from Vancouver’s local farmers market [2] are delicious when sauteed with bacon from BC’s Gelderman Farms [3] 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.

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.
