Brussel Sprout Brainwashing
Yes! The brainwashing is complete.
In all seriousness, when people tell me they don't eat brussel sprouts because they are bitter, I just explain that like all cruciferous vegetables, cooking them too long will release that sulpher-y taste. That's true of broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and - definitely! - brussel sprouts. The solution: steam them till they are just barely fork-tender. Slice in half. Sprinkle with sea salt. And drizzle with olive oil.
So easy, so tasty.
