I didn’t used to like this little layered joy bundles, also known as Brussels sprouts, but now I think they’re one of the most delicious veggies out there. The trick is to buy small, fresh ones. Instructables user scoochmaroo has a recipe for sauteing them with bacon, although at my house we make them vegetarian. We even skewered them and cooked them on the bbq, and they were delicious!

They’re also lovely in warm salads – raw and shredded *really* finely.
My favourite vegetable (after artichokes, that is)!
I think they’re at their best simply steamed.
Nice to see them getting some pr here.
Even the kids love brussels sprouts when we saute them! I actually had to tell my youngest he couldn’t have any any more sprouts until he ate some of his pizza.
What does this have to do with Craft???
Food is one of our most popular topics here on CRAFT. Many people who like to sew or knit also like to cook! I know I do.
Another easy, tasty method: cut them in half, toss with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast at 350 or so for about 20 minutes, stirring them about halfway through cooking. Both methods caramelize the brussels sprouts a bit, taking off the bitter edge and creating a nice texture.
I’ll have to try this recipe before I believe that you can make brussels sprouts edible. I am a skeptic as you can tell and I still say they smell like feet. We’ll see. :(
