What are Brussels Sprouts?
Brussels Sprouts are a nutritious cruciferous vegetable. They look like tiny cabbages and are part of the same family, however, they are not just small cabbages.
Instead, they are edible buds that grow on a tall stalk. Be warned though that they can taste very sulfurous and bitter if overcooked, so only cook them until just tender!
As a winter vegetable, they are often served at Thanksgiving and Christmas time, or through the winter.
How to prep Brussels sprouts
Sprouts aren't difficult to prep. Simply follow these easy instructions:
- Wash them to remove any dirt or impurities.
- Peel off any loose outer layers or any that are brown on the edges.
- Trim a little from the bases to remove any browning.
TIP: In the past, it was a popular practice to score a cross in the base of them. However, this isn't necessary. If you're steaming or boiling your sprouts it will let too much moisture up into the sprouts and make them soggy.
How to cook Brussels sprouts
Here are two very basic methods of cooking Brussels sprouts.
First, prep the sprouts as above.
Roasting: Toss the sprouts in a little oil, then spread out in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast at 400F/200C for 20 minutes or until golden.
Boiling: Bring a pot of water to a boil, add a pinch of salt, then add the sprouts. After 5 minutes, check if they're tender by piercing one with a sharp knife. Cook for a few more minutes if necessary. You want them to be tender, but not overly soft.
