    Looks like the Plant from little shop of horrors

    please explain…home-cooked or restaurant? I’ve been seeing recipes for them everywhere but I’m still so skeptical. All these food blogs insists they are delicious, but the 8-year-old in me just won’t believe it

    My latest way is to steam them first for a few minutes and then slice in half. Saute in olive oil; add salt, pepper and a few red parsley flakes. Delicious.

    mmm. sounds delicious. The first time I think they were just steamed. The second time we basically took them apart and sauteed them in a little oil for 3 minutes. Really easy. It’s more like eating a salad than brussel sprouts.

  • BS January 30, 2008  

    wow I’m shocked…I was expecting 8 pounds of butter and a kilo of sugar.

    update: According to Gansie, we sauteed some garlic in olive oil, then cooked the brussel sprouts for 3 mins, then tossed with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.

    That is a significant update!

    People used to call me brussel sprout when I was a child, kids can be so cruel. I do love them though, so good.

  • gansie January 30, 2008  

    britannia – why were these little children calling you brussel sprout? (that’s hysterical!)

    and – when the sprouts are briefly sauteed (leafs separated) they retained a bit of a bite and were slightly crunchy.

    Apparently it rhymes with my name… I don’t want to talk about it!

    (My first comment on your blog, which I really enjoy)…

    Brussel sprouts are the BEST. I slice them in half, toss with olive oil, s&p, and roast at 400 for 15 minutes. Sometimes, if I’m extra ambitious, I roast them for 10 minutes and then finish by sauteeing with thin slices of bacon.

    Maybe it’s just lunchtime, but as soon as I read the word bacon, I started drooling uncontrollably.

  • 80PMom January 30, 2008  

    Who knows best? I always liked my recipe with bacon.
