9 Brussels Sprouts Recipes That Will Make You A Fan
Posted By Tipnut On October 12, 2011 @ 11:45 am In Recipes | No Comments
Brussels sprouts were never on the menu in my family and I have to admit, I didn’t feel I was missing out on much. That all changed when I met my husband’s family, it was a staple during their get-togethers and I was bit hesitant about those little green globes. Tried a few and meh, not really a fan but it wasn’t something I’d admit to my new relatives, my solution was to cover them with gravy so they were at least edible! lol.
It wasn’t until a few years ago that I discovered how tasty they are roasted (even from frozen), learned to experiment with a few ingredients and cooking methods and now I pop these babies in like candy (yum!). The good news is that they’re loaded with health benefits (believed to help lower cholesterol, cancer prevention and more).
Ready to give them a chance? Here’s a nice assortment of recipes that I’ve handpicked from around the net along with basic instructions for roasting them from frozen.
Roasting from Frozen:
This is so easy to make and you can’t really mess it up, adjust cooking time to your taste (we like them well done so I may cook them a bit longer than you prefer).
That’s it! We also like to toss in quartered mushrooms (fresh) and even chunks of bell pepper (at the start of cooking time). For seasoning ideas, consider sprinkling red pepper flakes. The more you experiment with this easy dish, the more ways you’ll discover how tasty those sprouts can be ;).
