|You can buy them on the stalk at Trader Joe's. Cool, huh?|
I have expanded my palate a lot in the last decade. Mostly, I must admit, in the direction of vegetables. And also mostly because of my husband. He likes veggies. He has shown me the way. (No, I still don't like mushrooms or olives.)
One thing we really enjoy often and all year round are Brussels sprouts. I know, I know. But here are two great recipes to get you started if you want to try them. They're nutty and delicious - and they have good stuff on them. I find slicing them like this makes them much easier to eat and also tastier. ( Click the titles to be directed to the recipes in a new window - always true on my blog.)
(my favorite way to eat the B-Sprout these days)
|You can SEE the nuttiness!|
|Served with chicken tenders and acorn squash.|
|Here they are quartered and served not only with |
brown butter (what's better than that?) and dill, but also almonds. Yum!
So go out on a limb! Try some new veggies! Cook up some B-Sprouts and tell me what you think.
Also, if you'd like to cash in on any of the other foods up for discussion at the top of the post - let 'er rip. Any other controversial foods out there? I'm not really fond of mollusks, either....
