  1. Add three cups of water in a pot, place it on high, and have the water boil.
  2. Remove loose outer leaves of the brussels sprouts, trim the stem and wash them. Cut them in halves.
  3. Place the brussels sprouts in the boiling water and leave them in there for 5 minutes or until the brussels spouts have softened.
  4. Next strain the brussels sprouts.
  5. Bring a large pan to medium heat, add the oil, brussels sprouts, onion, and garlic. Let them roast for another 3-4 minutes on high heat until they are nicely browned.
  6. Then add the soy sauce and allow them to cool thoroughly.
  7. Enjoy!
