Oh, Brussels sprouts! How I love thee…
When I was younger, I used to think they were baby cabbages that had been harvested really young. I was surprised to find out that they are not. Since they are in the same family, they can be used in many dishes that call for cabbage for a different look. I use them in stir frys all the time or in egg rolls.
My favorite way to eat them, however, is roasted in the oven. Here is the best and most basic recipe that I have found for them. I typically start here and add whatever else I have. I am quite fond of grating a hard cheese (like Parmigiano-Reggiano) over the top. Sometimes I add dried cranberries.
