Have I lost you with the headline? While they might have been the veggie you hated most growing up, brussels have gotten a makeover in recent years and prepared well, are insanely delicious. Swear to you. Get ready to change your perception on the brussel sprout. This little cabbage deserves your attention.
And, yup, okay, so they might be extra delicious loaded up with crispy bacon (what isn’t?!) but there really are so many good ways to prepare them that don’t take much effort and yield maximum flavor.
If you’re a newbie to Brussel sprouts or you’re simply looking to expand beyond your broccoli habit, try this green and test out one of these recipes. Even more simply then these, I often cut them in half, pour on some olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder, and roast them at 400 degrees. Try Ina Garten’s recipe; seriously, she knows what’s up. Or, head to a Trader Joe’s; they have so many options, including shredded brussels perfect for salads (I eat it raw) or cooked.
