Carb Level: Low
- 2 cups quartered Brussels sprouts (ends trimmed)

Add 1 inch of salted water to a medium-sized saucepan fitted with a vegetable steamer basket. Bring to a boil and add the Brussels sprouts. Cover and cook over medium heat until crisp-tender, about 7 minutes. Rinse under cold water and drain; set aside.
