why do brussels sprouts have such a bad rap? they’re delicious! and we just figured this out. i also just realized that brussels sprouts is spelled like so… i’d always thought it was one word. i digress.
danny and i love veggies, but we find ourselves eating the same ones all. the. time. it feels like brussels sprouts are the trendy veggie of the moment (well, behind kale) so i picked some up and decided to give them a whirl.
how we made them:
- cleaned & cut in half
- tossed ‘em in olive oil, salt & pepper
- roasted in the oven at 400° for 45-minutes
– sprinkled with parmesan cheese
although both our moms say we did, neither of us recall eating them much growing up but we’ll make up for it now. they were the perfect side to our beefless teriyaki burgers with grilled pineapple, mushrooms & avocado.
next veggie we’re going to experiment with… eggplant. recipe suggestions welcome. the last time i ate much eggplant was in spain when it was breaded, fried & dipped in mayonnaise. i’m looking for something a little healthier this time around ;)
