Simple Brussel Sprouts

May 18, 2011

Brussel sprouts.  I think they are gross.  I have tried them in many dishes, I just can’t get with the b sprout.  They are EXTREMELY good for you since they contain sulforaphane.  Sulfraphane, also found in broccoli, is shown to prevent cancer in various research studies.   My dear friend said this is a simple recipe that I’ll enjoy…  I’ll give it whirl…  If you try this recipe let me know what you think!

  • Rinse. Cut in half. Put in oven @ 420 degrees for 20 or so minutes with coco oil and salt.
  • Stir around occasionally (every 5 or so minutes)

    If you are a not-so-very vegetarian that likes to indulge once in a while, save your bacon drippings (from your nitrate-free, humanely raised bacon) and add a tablespoon to the pan before you saute or roast your halved brussel sprouts. This adds a tremendous amount to the flavor and mouth-feel of this much maligned vegetable. (Since bacon has less saturated fat than butter, it shouldn’t make you feel to0 guilty either). Also, keep in mind that brussel sprouts, regardless of cooking method, cook quickly…the longer you cook them (past about 8 min.), the more bitter they get….I think this may be why so many people do not have fond memories of this green vegetable.
