  3. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a thick bottomed pan. When hot add the sliced brussels sprout cores and cook on high heat for about 30 seconds. Toss and cook for another 30 seconds. Remove from the pan to a bowl. If needed add 1 tbsp of oil to the pan and repeat the process with the separated leaves and bell peppers. Take care not to crowd the pan or overcook the veggies.
