Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Lemon & Capers

I know many people do not like brussels sprouts, my husband included. But I love them and they are so good for you. I started making this very easy brussels sprouts side dish some time ago and guess what? My husband likes it!

Being one of the cruciferous vegetables it's great in the fight against cancer. Plus recent studies show a unique benefit of protecting DNA. I need that... and guess what? So do you!

Try this out on your reluctant brussels sprouts crowd and see if you can win them over.
