Raise your hand if you love Brussels sprouts! Me, me me!
Interestingly, I didn’t eat my first Brussels sprout until I was in my 20’s because my mom didn’t care for them so therefore they never ended up on our supper table. I just assumed they were terrible and slimy (my mom’s description) so it never crossed my mind to buy them.
Fast forward to a fancy steakhouse date years later and there they sat on my plate tempting me to try. They didn’t look slimy or terrible. They looked perfectly roasted and golden brown. So I gently pierced one with my fork and took my first bite. Crispy on the outside and slightly soft and dense on the inside. It was love at first bite. I was officially converted to Team Brussels sprouts!
Fun Fact: Brussels sprouts are particularly high in protein, vitamin C and vitamin K when compared to other green vegetables. In fact, just one serving provides the daily requirement of both vitamins!
