I made something absolutely, completely new for me last night that was so very quick and easy, and so surprisingly delicious (approved by the whole family) that I had to share with everyone immediately.
The last time I ate brussels sprouts was when I was a kid, and I did not like them. Not at all. They came out of a box and were cooked in boiling water, tasted kind of like cabbage, which I didn't like, either.
These brussels sprouts should be in a whole different category by themselves, though.
- 1 lb fresh brussels sprouts
- 2 T olive oil
- Kosher salt
- garlic powder
Watch closely toward the end so they don't burn, but you want the yummy carmelization of the dark chocolate brown parts.
There were some loose leaves that were browned to crisp that I ate right off the baking tray as soon and they came out of the oven, along with a couple of the larger pieces. We had dinner fairly quickly after these were done, and they were still delicious, but I have to say, next time I'll try to time these so that we're ready to eat immediately.
The whole family gave these the thumbs up, so I'll definitely be adding these to our vegetable repertoire.
What new things have you been cooking up lately?
