Brussels are Delicious.

Brussels Sprouts are delicious and are becoming my new favorite snack.  I remember not liking them when I was younger but I recently tried them at a dinner party and since then I've been hooked.  I boil  them in chicken broth with a pinch of salt & pepper....I like them crunchy (al dente), so I only boil them for a few minutes.
I researched Brussels Sprouts and they are also extremely healthy.  I was stoked to learn that they are high in protein (muscles like protein), dietary fiber, and antioxidants.

Do you like brussels sprouts?  if so, what is your favorite recipe?

i really need to try brussel sprouts again ... i hated them as a child so i've never tried them as an adult ... i think i just may put it on my grocery list and see how it goes!

i've only had them once, and didn't mind them, but my husband wasn't a big fan. i may have to give them another shot since they're just really really cute, haha!

I like these too.. they have a "weird" taste but I love them :) I wouldn't eat them for snack though, just with any meal.. xx

I love B. Sprouts. Eat them 3 ways

1. Breakfast - Finely slice sprouts, fry in coconut oil with some pepper, salt and coconut aminos (instead of soy sauce)

2. B.sprouts and bacon. Dice bacon and render fat. Take out bacon bits. Add sliced sprouts to the skillet, when tender, add bacon bits back to skillet.

3. Oven roasted sprouts. Halve sprouts, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake until crispy.

Hope you enjoy these recipes

I had these recently at a dinner party and they were not bad. I think they were sauteed in a little butter w/ some salt and pepper. Wonder if a sprinkle of parmesan would make them even better?!

I really...really need to get on the veggie bus.

I'm more active since starting Brazilian jiu jitsu, but my diet is still too light on vegetables. (it would clear off the extra fluff I have around my middle).

Oh...I like the sprouts, but cooked with bacon.
