How to cook Brussels sprouts

Have you ever eaten Brussels sprouts? Did you know the correct term is Brussels sprout and not brussel sprout? Because I certainly didn't. I guess I've been saying it wrong all my life. Regardless, this is about how to cook Brussels sprouts not how to correctly use it in a sentence.

Before we get started, Brussels sprouts contain protein, fiber, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin A, and folate. All of which are necessary daily nutrients. I've heard so many references about Brussels sprouts being disgusting, but they're not at all as gross as one would assume. Add them to any meal to create a healthy vegetarian recipe.

Since turning vegan, I've been experimenting, eating, and cooking with many vegetables I'd never have touched before. I decided to pick up some fresh sprouts from the store (ironically I purchased my sprouts from Sprouts), but I wasn't sure what to do with them. Here's what I came up with:

Step 1: Obtain and wash Brussels sprouts.

Step 2: Cut Brussels sprouts in half.

Step 3: Add olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees or until outermost layer starts to brown.

That's pretty much it. This is simple and it tastes scrumptious. Make these for an easy cheap healthy vegetarian recipe for one or for all! Alternatively, you may add garlic salt, rosemary, vegan butter, or other spices if you so wish. This is a basic template to get your Brussels sprout taste buds flowing. Go out to the store, pick out a few good looking sprouts, and get to cooking! 

Bon appétit!

  1. Funny enough, my husband loves brussel sprouts more than any other food. I'm not the biggest fan, but I'll be sure and pass this along!

  5. The glucoraphanin, glucobrassicin, sinigrin, and gluconasturtiian that can be found in Brussels Sprouts are cancer-preventive components, which means this vegetable can be a healthy recipe for everybody.
