    Brussels sprouts!

    Anyone else love them? I only realised today how much I love them. I'd roasted about a dozen for tossing cold through salads, for FUTURE use, but when I took them out of the oven I couldn't resist them and ended up eating them all.
    Woops.
    I must have a problem

    I love Brussels, especially roasted! I am guilty of eating a whole batch by my lonely, too. Luckily, hubby hates them.

    One of my favorites! Steam with pastured lard and I'm set.

    Brassicas seem to be a thing you either love or hate. I'm on the hater side. It probably has something to do with how sensitive your taste buds are to bitterness. I can eat Brussels sprouts, but certainly don't enjoy them. Nor broccoli nor cauliflower. And kale ..... ech! My partner is even worse.

    I would encourage you to look for baby brussels sprouts - they are typically not as bitter.

    I love brussels sprouts just about any way. My current favorite right now is to sauteed with bacon and chinese five spice...

    Roasted is the way to go! With a little bacon/bacon grease/butter and leeks, maybe a little onion powder... damn, it's SO good!

    I don't have an oven, though, so I usually steam them, then fry them with a little butter and smoked paprika. I'm a broke uni student, so bacon is a luxury :P
