Yum love them!! My most favorite way to prepare and eat Brussell's sprouts is pan braised in a little butter-olive oil mix. Cut them in half or fourths (depending on size) brown in a pan, add lid for a few minutes until they start to brown, then add a splash of white wine or chicken stock, or both. Turn heat down to med/low and put the lid back on, let them braise for about ten minutes. Sometimes I'll add pine nuts and/or garlic the last couple of minutes to get toasty. They are very delicious this way, it brings out the nutty flavor.

I didn't like them, or most other vegetables as a child but I think that's because in those days, they tended to overcook everything!! Yuck.

I just wish I could grow them!! I got close this spring. They were small and hubby said they didn't have much flavor. May try again.

FAITH over fear!
