Mardi Gras Brussels Sprout

If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know-I LOVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS!  You also know I am from Louisiana and I love our heritage and culture.  Yes I do!  I’ve enjoyed brussels sprouts with thyme, apples or just plain old sea salt and pepper. On one of my various cooking quests, I attempted something different with the baby cabbages and it was an instant hit with my palate!  From this attempt came Mardi Gras Brussels Sprouts!  Check out the recipe below. Share with you friends and let the good times roll with brussels sprouts!

It's party like no other with Mardi Gras Brussels Sprouts!

Mardi Gras Brussels Sprouts


2 lbs of brussels sprouts  (Fresh is better)

1 tbsp of turmeric

1/3 cup of chopped purple onion 

1/2 tbsp Trader Joe’s Everyday season


1/2 tsp sea salt 

1/2 tsp pepper

2 tbsp Pompeii Pomegranate Red Wine Vinegar.

1 tablespoon of Olive oil.


Clean brussels sprouts. Trim and halve brussels sprouts lengthwise. Remove ragged outer leaves. 

In a medium to large pan, heat olive oil over medium-high. Olive oil burns easily. Be careful.

Add brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper or everyday seasoning. Add purple onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until caramelized,  8 to 10 minutes. 

Add *vinegar and cook until evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add turmeric and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

*BONUSWant an alternative to Pomegranate Red Wine vinegar? Substitute with lemon juice. Delish!
