I wish I could tell you some enlightening story about how much I used to hate brussels sprouts and grew to love them, but I guess I’ve always been a nerd and have always really liked brussels sprouts. Look, I am not one to turn down food, so veggies are my friends not foes.
The key with veggies – brussels sprouts in particular – is to cook them correctly. For some reason, people think that placing a bag full of brussels sprouts in a pot of boiling water is acceptable and are always surprised when it tastes like poo. Look, veggies need as much (if not more) TLC as your slab of meat, OK. People marinate meats overnight for crying out loud! You have to show your veggies just as much appreciation and dedication.
Anyways, brussels sprouts are one of the veggies that gets the worst wrap just because of this – people don’t know how to prepare them! These recipes take you step-by-step through the process. Final destination? A party hosted by your taste buds.
