Let us be clear: Brussels sprouts and bacon is a very good idea. Bacon provides fat for sautéing and plenty of delicious flavor and texture for these tiny cabbages. However, bacon isn’t for everyone; Brussels sprouts are! So here are a few of our favorite ways to cook Brussels sprouts without bacon.

Brussels sprouts can be a bit bitter—I think that’s why some people don’t like them. But here, any bitterness is countered with lemon juice, fresh dill, and toasted almonds. The result is a really good, completely health-conscious vegetable dish. Even if you haven’t liked Brussels sprouts before, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.
