You may or may not like Brussels Sprouts, I totally understand. When I was growing up my mom boiled them and she added lemon juice. Period. I didn’t like them. Now add some butter and I can eat them. Add some other ingredients and I love Brussels Sprouts!

When I met Mark, he mentioned he loved Brussels Sprouts. So I boiled them like my mom and we ate them, with butter. Here’s the deal, in the last few years everyone is buying those babies! And what’s awesome, people are making them a gourmet side dish.

You can cook them in your pressure cooker for about 3 minutes. Please remember to add one cup of water before you push that pressure cook button. I actually like baked ones over pressure cooked ones because I like the crispness that a conventional oven gives them. It’s almost like they are caramelized, in a way. Anyway, either way, is awesome, we are eating healthy, right?

You may notice I use very little spices in my recipes because I like the natural taste of things. I love garlic and onions so you will see plenty of those in my recipes. I’m a simple cook who likes to prepare food with friends and family.

Wow, you can see why people are grabbing bags at the grocery store. These are one healthy vegetable. This may seem lazy, but I love buying Brussels Sprouts in bags that are sliced ready to use. It makes my day go a little smoother. There is a grocery store here in Southern Utah that caters to the retired folks and college students.

    I love Brussel Sprouts! I have a roasted recipe similar to yours, Linda! It’s one of the few veggies my husband will eat.
    I was also going to mention that Brussel Sprouts are fairly easy to grow. Here in NW Florida (zone 8b & 9) I’ve planted seedlings in mid September and enjoyed Brussel Sprouts for New Year’s Day dinner.
