List of Ingredients
1 pound Brussel sprouts, trimmed
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup milk, warmed

Heat oven to 350F. Place Brussels sprouts in saucepan and cover with water. Add lemon juice and simmer, uncovered, until tender--about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.
