  • 2 pounds Brussel Sprouts, ends trimmed, cut in half

  • 1 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

  • Add in garlic, remaining butter, vegetable broth, and cream cheese; season with salt and pepper and top with the lid.
  • Close the lid and set to Sealing.
