Turns out brussels sprouts are edible. Who knew? And, they taste kind of like broccoli. I might not have waited 26 years to try them if I had known they tasted like broccoli. I mean, I'm not a huge broccoli fan but I do find it to be edible, and it's certainly not my least favorite vegetable.
I heard recently that brussels sprouts get a bad rep because they get boiled frequently, and boiling makes them nasty. Apparently they are really good roasted. Since I didn't feel like waiting 45 minutes for them to roast, I sauteed them instead.
Sauteed Brussels Sprouts
10 brussels sprouts, cleaned and quartered
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp minced fresh ginger
pinch of crushed rosemary
Brown the garlic and ginger in olive oil. Add the brussels sprouts and saute for a few minutes. Add garlic and ginger powders if desired. Add pinch of rosemary.
