Creamy Brussels Sprout and Shallot Dip

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 1/2 cups Brussels sprouts, roughly chopped
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Scant 1/2 cup sour cream (light or regular)
  • 4 ounces (1/2 package) 1/3 fat cream cheese
  • 1 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese + more for topping
  • 1/4 tsp. each sea salt and ground black pepper

Heat a cast iron or oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Once hot add 1 Tbsp olive oil, shallot and garlic. Stir constantly as to not to let it burn. Add Brussels sprouts, 1/4 tsp each sea salt and pepper and stir. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until tender and slightly wilted and then remove from heat, turning off burner as well. In a separate bowl mix together sour cream, cream cheese, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, another pinch of salt and pepper and stir. Add Brussels sprouts mixture to the bowl and stir until well combined. Use additional Tbsp. olive oil to lightly grease the cast iron so the dip doesn’t stick. Spoon dip back into the skillet and bake at 375 for 11-13 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve with veggies, pita, crackers, bread or tortilla chips. Tortilla chips were my favorite.
