1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse fresh produce.

3. Remove and discard any outer leaves of Brussels sprouts if they look brown or beat up.

4. Steam sprouts in a microwave safe dish in the microwave for 3 minutes or until tender. They should be almost cooked all the way through but not completely.

5. Strain sprouts. Blanch by placing in a bowl of ice water to keep their color bright green. Strain and pat dry, then cut sprouts into halves.

6. Heat buttery spread in a large saute pan on medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, about 4 to 5 minutes.

7. Add Brussels sprouts. Increase heat to medium high and cook for several more minutes, until tender and cooked through. Add pepper to taste.

8. Remove pan from the heat and stir in lemon juice. Serve and enjoy!
