Now, a little background may be necessary. We like to eat. We most often choose not so healthy fare...burgers & fries, casseroles, bread, bread, and more bread. And we LOVE desserts! Bud especially loves ice cream, and I'm always happy to join him in eating a bowl!
So, we have added more fruits and veggies into our diet. And some of those we've never tried before. The mangoes we tried were tasty, and Bud loved the pomegranate salad. Tonight it was brussel sprouts.
Lately I keep seeing brussel sprouts mentioned on some of the blogs I read. So, that was our "treat" for supper tonight.
This is the recipe that I followed:
1 lb. brussel sprouts
2 T coconut oil(melted)
3 T balsamic vinegar
1 tsp garlic salt
Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash brussel sprouts and cut off any yellow leaves. After cleaning the B brussels sprouts, halve them and place in a large bowl. Pour the vinegar over them, making sure to fully coat them. Allow to sit for 5 minutes to absorb the vinegar. Pour the melted coconut oil over the sprouts and coat thoroughly. On a baking sheet, place the sprouts face down in a single layer. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Place the pan in your preheated oven for 10 minutes and then turn. This will ensure even cooking throughout. Cook for another 15 minutes.
Let's just say I've tasted better grass clippings. They were strong smelling, and disgusting!! We won't be having them again in this household. Bud's word for them was, "putrid"! And that's coming from a guy we've always said would eat $&@t if you gave him a slice of bread!
So, who out there LIKES brussel sprouts and how do you eat them?
