YIELD: 6 servings


12-16 Brussel sprouts, halved and washed
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 onion, diced

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan on medium heat. Add the garlic clove and onion, stirring constantly for several minutes until appearing translucent. Add the Brussel sprouts and mushrooms and cook until soft, but not mushy.
Add the remaining ingredients along with 5-6 cups water; enough to cover the vegetables.
Cover and bring to boil.
