Buttery Brussel Sprouts with Rosemary and Garlic

  • 15 - 18 brussels sprouts
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter *
  • 3 cloves of garlic (peeled and smashed with the flat of a knife)
  • 1 large sprig of fresh rosemary
  • salt
  • water


  1. Rinse the brussels sprouts with lukewarm water to remove any dirt. Remove and trim just a bit off the stem. Rinse and drain.
  2. Fill a small pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil**. Add brussels sprouts, butter, garlic and rosemary and boil about 10 - 15 minutes***. Cover the pot, leaving a slit for the steam to escape.
  3. Drain and serve immediately.


* There are so many different butters to choose from here in Italy, just as vast as their milk selection. Burro Galli (pictured above) is one of my favorites, nice full-flavored butter, perfect for cooking and baking.
** This recipe can also be made by steaming the brussel sprouts instead of boiling. Just add all the ingredients together and steam for about 5-10 minutes.
*** My family likes eating their brussel sprouts a bit more soft then crunchy, so we boil them for about 10 - 12 minutes, you can try to cook them for 6-10 minutes if you like them just a bit tender.
