Brussels Sprouts & Hard Boiled Egg Chop Salad Print Recipe Print Recipe

 

I don’t know what it is about brussels sprouts, but I can’t get enough of them. It’s a slight obsession.

I’ve made this Brussels Sprouts & Hard-Boiled Egg Chop Salad a dozen of times now. It’s so simple, yet so satisfying. I’ve also added grilled chicken for extra protein. Speaking of protein…

I’ve been ever so slowly sticking my toes in the paleo diet. As I continue to try and work off this baby weight, I’ve been incorporating more paleo meals into my diet. I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed the meals I’ve tried and definitely going to experiment a little more. What I love about this dish & other paleo recipes I’ve tried is that I don’t feel like I’m missing anything. I mean, I did eat several servings of this salad, but it filled me up. As far as the diet goes, I just can’t give up my potatoes, junior mints & white wine at the moment.

 

 

Brussels Sprouts Chop

Inspired by Sprouted Kitchen and Super Natural Everyday

PRINT Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 lb brussels sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 4 large hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup slivered/chopped almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Directions

Taking one brussels sprout at a time, peel back the individual leafs until you get close to the center and you can’t peel anymore. You may either discard the center or cut in half and roast at a later time. Place all the leaves a bowl.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Add brussels sprouts leaves and sauté until slightly wilted or lightly browned. Remove from heat. Add the chopped hard-boiled eggs, slivered almonds and sprinkle with sea salt and mix together.

Serve and Enjoy!

    I was eating Paleo before getting pregnant (and then my morning sickness messed that up!) but I will say that I did give myself little cheats (still drank wine and had pasta every once in a while) and I still had tons of energy, skin cleared up and dropped weight really easily. I will be getting back on Paleo once my nausea goes away… I loved it!

    My kind of salad! I’ve been challenging myself to a salad a day, trying to drum up some excitement for winter salads. Your version sounds exciting. I can’t wait to try it!

    {Megan / Country Cleaver} Ben doesn’t understand my love of brussels sprouts – and I’ve got sprouts and 4 dozen eggs that must get used. This is so going to happen.

    This looks tasty! I have been doing kind of a Paleo thing too – most of my carbs are only coming from fruit and veggies. It’s definitely worked for me (I’ve lost 23lbs) and I’m the same as you, not missing it as much as I thought I would. Of course, I steal bites of Carlos’ carbs! ;-) XX

    That’s awesome, I’m so proud of you!! are you eating beans? I can’t seem to quit the chili.. or the wine! oh well, so far I’m feeling good so I haven’t needed to go to the extremes ;) ps. I miss you!!

  • http://www.savvyinsanfrancisco.blogspot.com/ Savvy in San Francisco

    I am eating beans! Only allowed to eat 1/2 cup a day though! I’ve been pretty good with the wine. Just saving it for nights we go out to dinner or at events in the city! You always have to remember that it took nine months to put on the baby weight and that you have to give yourself a break! Miss you too! Hope that you are going to bring the little guy down for a visit soon! XX

    Oh are you on a program? I think the wine is only a problem because we’re living with my parents and my mom wants to pour a glass of wine every time she comes home… its been so fun, but so hard to say no sometimes! I hope we can make it back down to the bay area for a visit – missing all you ladies!!
