Food Friday – Brussel Sprouts

Fresh Raw Brussel Sprouts
When I was a kid, my parents made me eat my vegetables, ALL my vegetables. Even the ones I didn’t like. As a result, I learned to like most. Brussel sprouts were one of the few exceptions. I always thought they were cute as much as a vegetable can be cute, but I didn’t like their slightly bitter taste. As an adult, I am all about growing, learning and expanding my world. Recently this included giving brussel sprouts another try.

I found I actually like these miniature cabbages if they are stir-fried lightly with some salt, garlic and olive oil (especially a flavored one from Cleo’s) or even raw. My mom was a pretty good cook, but I think she over-did the brussel sprouts a bit. It probably helped that I got my super fresh brussel sprouts right on the stock from Whole Foods too. If there was something you didn’t like as a kid, don’t be afraid to give it another try, you might discover you have been missing out on something good!

    I didn’t like brussel sprouts or beets as a kid and avoided them as an adult. I tried both within the last year and am in LOVE! I, too, find that a simply preparation is best (brussel sprouts are amazing roasted in the oven with a little balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper).
