I Heart Brussels Sprouts

That's all. I just heart Brussels sprouts. I don't know why.

I had Brussels sprouts for dinner tonight. They were good.

Later, when I want a snack, I'm going to eat cold, leftover Brussels sprouts.

I really like them too. It always makes me sad when I meet people who's only idea of vegetables are mashed potatoes and broccoli smothered in Velveeta. Broccoli, brussels sprouts and spinach are much maligned, but that's okay, more for me.

Hate to sprout off but what is savory to the palate can lead to disgasterous results.

I don't particulary care for brussle sprouts, they really don't have any flavor for me, except when they are sour . I like zucinni, radicious, and diakon...

chiffonade (sic),
ok slice em up, saute in a little olive oil until tender. add about 1 tablespoon fresh
lemon juice and 1 teaspoon poppy seeds, toss and enjoy.

or drizzle them with olive oil and grill them, wonderful.

they are my favourite vegatable.

I really don't care for brussel sprouts or kale for that matter, they can both stay in the fridge for eternity.

People actually eat brussel sprouts? I thought they were used only on occassions when relatives came over for dinner to help discourage repeat visits.

I love almost every veggie, especially in the leaf family.

Only veggies I don't like are based on texture. turnip, parsnip etc. Mostly yellow veggies
