Sadly, Brussels sprouts often are overlooked because someone once cooked them in a way that didn’t highlight their deliciousness…sad.
If that was the case for you, I challenge you to try them again this way. You may be pleasantly surprised!
What’s Smart & Sexy About This Dish?
Dulse— Never heard of Dulse? It’s red seaweed that grows along the Northern coasts of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
It comes in many different forms–flakes, powder or in whole strips. When sautéed up in extra-virgin olive oil it taste like bacon (if you are a bacon lover and wanting to avoid it, sauté’ up some dulse and make your own DLT instead of a BLT–seriously, amazing!)
What isn’t smart and sexy about Dulse? Here are just a few of its amazing qualities:
1. Cleanses the body of heavy metals
2. Increases metabolism and aids in weigh loss
3. High in calcium, fiber and protein
4. Supports healthy brain function
5. Heals and enhances the liver; a happy liver makes a smarter, sexier you!

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Dulse
20 Brussels sprouts (approximately or 1 bag)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2-3 tablespoons shallots, chopped fine
2 tablespoons Dulse Powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
Cut the bottoms off of the Brussels sprouts and remove any outer leaves that don’t look healthy. Halve Brussels sprouts lengthwise. Cute lengthwise into thin (1/8-inch slices).
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and sauté for 1 minute. Add in garlic and dulse and sauté for another minute.
Add in Brussels sprouts and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Sauté until edges brown, approximately 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Season to taste. Enjoy!
