Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Would you believe me if I told you that I never had brussel sprouts until recently? Ok, I never had them until recently.

Brussel sprouts are one of those vegetables that I naturally assumed were the most disgusting thing on the face of the Earth. Every person (including my husband) would always say how disgusting they were. So, I figured there wasn’t a need to try them. But on this journey, I’ve learned you have to dabble into a bit of everything or else you’ll become bored with your options.

These Vitamin C packed vegetables sort of remind me of cabbages. Well, they are in the cabbage family. But, imagine a nice white cabbage just smaller. That’s what brussel sprouts are.

Firstly, let me just say that I don’t know why people give these mini cabbages a bad rep. I think the reason they don’t enjoy it is because it isn’t seasoned or prepared correctly. The best way to prepare these bad boys is by roasting them.

Cooking these are pretty simple. All you need are salt, pepper, and garlic powder. It’s a very inexpensive side that you can add to any main course meal.

Roasted brussel sprouts are everything you need. It’s crunchy and flaky. It has the perfect crisp to your tastebuds. Seriously! I enjoyed these. Even my husband agreed that these didn’t taste so bad after all. The crunchiness reminded me of eating a healthy bag of vegeatble chips.
