Sweet & Savory Brussels Sprouts with Quinoa


  • 20 brussels sprouts very thinly sliced
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 cups red grapes
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt


  • Rinse quinoa well (unless using the pre-rinsed quinoa from a box). Bring 2 cups water and quinoa to a boil, stir and cover, reducing heat to simmer until all liquid is gone (about 10 minutes). Fluff with a fork, set aside.
  • Heat heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until crispy. Set aside on paper towel-lined plate.
  • Add grapes to skillet and saute for 2-3 minutes until they begin to burst. Remove and set aside.
  • Add brussels sprouts to pan and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the leaves are bright green and slightly browned from the pan.
  • Toss all ingredients in a large bowl with sea salt. Serve immediately.
