Preparing Brussels Sprouts

on February 26, 2012

A few days ago I made DIJON BRAISED BRUSSELS SPROUTS.  And they were awesome, but the prep that are required for Brussels sprouts makes me wonder if they are worth it or if I’m just trying to find an excuse to give up on them altogether. 😉

Here’s a how to, in pictures – whether you’re braising or roasting. 

Seriously though, this isn’t difficult, but it can be time consuming when you’ve got a pound or two of these guys.  Even still, I didn’t buy Brussels sprouts for the longest time because I thought they were all bad.

Nobody ever accused me of being the brightest crayon in the box.

    I had Brussels. Sprouts roasted in the oven until crispy last night! Yummy!

  2. Ugh, I’m still so conflicted about brussels sprouts, lol. They look like they should be so yummy and fresh-tasting but whyyyy do I hate them so?? I’m still going to give your dijon sprouts a try one of these days…as soon as I forget how much I hated sprouts last time I prepared them!

    Your brussels are beautiful. ; ) The only recipe I’ve ever made before starring brussels are the oven roasted garlic brussels in Vegan with a Vengeance. Also, I’m not sure if I had this blog layout first or if you did, so if I stole it from ya, I’m sorry. It looks good on both of us. 😀
