toasted coconut brussels sprouts

If you like coconut or brussels sprouts you have to try this recipe. If you don't like brussels sprouts you have to try this recipe. Some friends of ours made these for us last week and they were so good I asked for the recipe and made them the next day. I served them to some family who normally don't like brussels spouts and they were a hit! The kids loved them too.
recipe adapted from

2-4 servings
1 pound brussels sprouts, stems removed and halved or quartered
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
pinch of nutmeg
2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
2 Tbsp. (or more to taste) coconut milk
2-3 Tbsp. (or more to taste) coconut, toasted

Add quartered sprouts to a bowl and drizzle with melted coconut oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and nutmeg and toss to coat.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add brussels. Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until toasted and nicely charred. Reduce heat to low and stir in coconut milk. Stir in 2 Tbsp. toasted coconut, then transfer to a bowl to serve. Top with remaining coconut.
