buttered brussels

One of my favorite veggies, Brussels sprouts are quirky, adorable, stinky and–gulp–healthy. They are surprisingly versatile, but for this preparation, I stuck to simple.

Steam the Brussels sprouts whole until tender. Saute over high heat in brown butter, adding thinly sliced garlic about halfway through. Once the garlic is golden brown and the outer leaves of the sprouts have blistered, season with S & P and be done with it.

    When I was a kid, I hated eating vegetables. One night brussel sprouts were the vegetable of the evening. I hid my four in a coffee can on the windowsill that held an avocado pit studded with toothpicks that my Mom was hoping would turn into a plant…You know like all Moms did in the 60s…Unfortunately, my secret was revealed about a week later when a very unpleasant odor was emanating from that coffee can…I was found guilty…
    Forty years later, I friggin LOVE brussel sprouts! Who knew they could actually be tasty! Thanks, my child!
