  • Wash fresh brussel sprouts under cold running water.
  • Cut of the tip of the root end and remove a few outer leaves that might have dirt and imperfections. Be careful not to cut too much off of the stem so most of the leaves still hold together.
  • If brussel sprouts are big enough, cut each in half. The smaller ones can remain whole.
  • Preheat your pressure cooker on “Sautee”.
  • Add water and place a steam rack inside.
  • Place brussel sprouts on the steam rack and close the lid.
  • Cook brussel sprouts in pressure cooker mode for 3-4 minutes (depending on the size).
  • Once ready arrange them on the serving plate, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Top with pine nuts and pomegranate seeds.

If you like to add a bit more spiciness, instead of classic extra virgin olive oil try it with Garlic & Chili Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
