I am really not sure when my love of brussel sprouts began. I absolutely know that I never had them when I was growing up. They were a taboo word in my day. Associated with total yuck!
Balsamic Brussel Sprouts
I am so glad I finally tried them. I honestly do not remember where or when that was though. I feared them for no reason at all. They are just little cute cabbages. They taste like cabbage too.
Brussel sprouts are SO good for us too since they are loaded with vitamin K-1 and Vitamin C. They are also an antioxidant, like their friends cabbage, cauliflower, kale and broccoli.
For years, my favorite way to cook is the simply saute them in coconut oil and garlic. (I have always used frozen brussel sprouts too) Delish!
I decided it was time to try roasting fresh brussel sprouts in balsamic vinegar and a olive oil last week. And now….I am hooked. I made these twice in one week!
You must try these!
