Brussels sprout Surprise

The surprise is that I like them.This is a real simple recipe that came about because I am tired of over cooked,roasted and soy sauce recipes for sprouts. I am not a huge fan of this vegetable but the husband loves them and buys them all the time.
In a hurry the other night needing something green to serve I look at the little sprouts about to wilt in my refrigerator and the orange on the counter and think why not.The rest as they say is about to be history.
