Ah, brussels sprouts -- a kid's worst nightmare. Brussels sprouts are an extremely nutritious vegetable but they are rather bitter in taste by themselves, so if you don't know how to prepare them properly, they can make for a rather unpleasant dining experience. But fear not! We've found a couple of ways to prepare to make the most of brussels sprouts so that you can get all their health benefits while maximizing flavor. Check out the recipes below!
If you opt for the seared brussels sprouts, they are a wonderful appetizer to prepare you for the main dish. Follow up your brussels sprouts with a nice pasta dish or if the weather is nice, fire up the barbecue and cook up a nice rack of ribs! In fact, if the bars on your grill are close enough together, placing your brussels sprouts on the grill can give the greens a nice char, adding a nice smoky flavor to the usually bitter vegetable.
If you go with the brussels sprout Caesar salad, following up with a baked chicken breast and steamed vegetables is an easy and healthy option. If you just want to make a heartier salad for a full meal, cut up the chicken breast and toss it in along with some cherry tomatoes, shaved carrots and walnuts to give you a balanced meal full of flavor!
