So you need to start by getting some Brussels sprouts, between 1/2 and 1 pound. Look for smallish ones. Wash and trim any funny looking spots from the ends. If you buy them on the "Reduced for Quick Sale" rack like me, you'll have to do a little extra trimming, but once you're done no one will know! Well, unless you post it on your blog. Then your readers will know, but for me that's only like three people, so we're still good here.
When they are beautiful, remove those sprouts with tongs to a serving plate, or if you're ghetto like me, just toss them aside on anything that will keep them until the next step is done. Then add your garlic, along with a touch more of butter, back to the pan to let the pine nuts get a nice golden brown to them. (See note on your worth and diet plans above.) At this point, it is important to breathe in deeply, because nothing smells quite like roasting garlic with pine nuts. Yum!
