Brussels Sprouts with Sherry-Asiago Cream Sauce

From: EatingWell

Can a rich cream sauce be healthy? Yes, when it's made with a little full-flavored cheese like Asiago, low-fat milk and sherry. Look for dry-to-medium sherry sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store.

Servings: 4 servings, about 3/4 cup each
Prep: 20 mins
Total: 20 mins

1 pound  Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons  minced shallot
1 tablespoon  all-purpose flour
2/3 cup  low-fat milk
2 tablespoons  sherry
1/3 cup  finely shredded Asiago cheese
1/8 teaspoon  salt
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1. Place Brussels sprouts in a steamer basket and steam in a large saucepan over 1 inch of boiling water until tender, about 8 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring once or twice until just starting to brown, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Sprinkle in flour; stir until combined. Whisk in milk and sherry; bring to a simmer, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring often, until thickened and bubbly, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese, salt and pepper. Spoon the sauce over the sprouts.
Look for dry-to-medium sherry sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store.

Haven't made this yet, but I will... with ROASTED brussel sprouts. I've cooked for brussel sprout haters who have goggled up my roasted sprouts. Just oven roast them in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil, sea salt, freshly cracked pepper and garlic. They are a world of difference away from boiled, mushy, stinky brussel sprouts.
