Named after the capital of Belgium, where they may have first been cultivated. They look like small heads of cabbage; in fact they belong to the cabbage family. A cruciferous vegetable, thought to protect against certain forms of cancer.
Brussels Sprouts are easier to prepare than they are to spell. We suggest steaming them and simply adding salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Easy breezy side-dish.
Wait, no we don't! We suggest ROASTING them! Phew, that was close. Whoever wrote that suggestion above had some pretty bland dinners - I hope they had a good sauce to top their sprouts with!
Roasting is easy: Halve them, take that salt, pepper and olive oil and dribble from above, then add a little Balsamic Vinegar, mix together then roast them flat sides up until they start to brown and crisp a bit. Flip if needed and serve. They're also great with some bacon or toasted pecans or walnuts.
