If the phrase “delicious Brussels sprouts” prompts you to express your verbal disagreement,you aren’t alone! Brussels sprouts are a strong-flavored, cruciferous vegetable that many of us had negative experiences with during childhood. If cooked poorly, they can have an overpowering flavor and a mushy texture. If prepared well however, they can be absolutely delicious! Challenge yourself to try something new and try this recipe for roasted Brussels sprouts. For a smoky flavor, put them on the grill!
