If you hate Brussels sprouts, I’m here to tell you… you are missing out. Because you haven’t had these roasted Brussels sprouts.
It was this method of preparation that made my daughter fall in love with Brussels sprouts when she was 4 years old. She’s 12 now, and they are now one of her very favorite vegetables.
In fact, when I took her to Whole Foods once and got some steamed Brussels sprouts from the prepared food section, she hated them. She said, “Mom, these aren’t like your Brussels sprouts!”
Why are they so good? It’s all the saturated fat (yes, it’s good for you) and the caramelization that takes these Brussels sprouts over the top. Brussels sprouts can taste bitter when not prepared correctly, but the roasting in fat is what makes them so delicious.
