It's funny. Brussels sprouts and "worst vegetable ever" are synonymous for many people. But if you start roasting them until they're nice and crunchy, I guarantee you'll change your tune.
But, if you try to eat boiled from-frozen brussels sprouts, then I guess it's not so surprising. I never really ate them growing up, and the first recipe I ever tried was Kalyn's Kitchen's shredded roasted brussels sprouts. After trying these and making a few of my own, I am definitely a super-huge fan.
They're nutty and crunchy and super delicious. AND incredibly easy. Cause, you know, they're roasted. I love them with almonds or walnuts or parmesan or lemon, but they're pretty delicious on their own.
Brussels Sprouts are about $1.99 a pound, which is about 4 cups.
