Quick Lemony Brussels Sprouts
1 Lb. fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed
2 Tsp. olive oil
1/2 Small onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 Tsp. grated lemon peel
2 Tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 Tsp. pepper
1/8 Tsp. salt (optional)
Trim outer leaves from Brussels sprouts. With sharp knife, cut a small “x” in stem end of sprouts; set aside.
Combine oil and onion in microwave-safe 1-quart casserole; toss to coat onions. Microwave, covered, 1 minute. Add Brussels sprouts and 3 tablespoons water. Cover and microwave on HIGH 6 to 9 minutes or until Brussels sprouts are crisp-tender, stirring once. Add lemon peel, lemon juice, pepper and salt, if desired; toss to coat.
