How do you eat your Brusselsprouts?

on Mar 11, 2016 @ 07:24 am

I'm going to cook them in the microwave as from what I've read it preserves most of the nutrients.  What should I put on them after?

I have tried butter and salt.  Any other suggestions?

I usually halve them, toss them in a little olive oil, S&P, garlic powder & chili flakes, and then roast them in the oven for about 12 minutes @ 375 degrees.

Thanks for the topping suggestions. on Mar 11, 2016 @ 08:19 am

I want to get better at brusselsprouts. I tend to eat foods singularly. Rather then what people do such as a meat, a veggie and starch. So I'll have a whole meal of brusselsprouts. I'm looking for more vegan options, so trying to find a way NOT to use butter. The garlic and chili flakes sounds great.

I steam them for about 10 minutes and then drizzle butter over them.

Before I steam them though, I cut crosses into the bottoms to help them soften up.

I've heard that roasting them on the bbq is good. I think butter is best topping but I've heard of some lemon topping recipes too.

How about substuting butter for extra virgin olive oil. It's good for your health and dresses them well. I usually roast mine in the oven like jcb75 mentioned or I'll parboil them and then sauté them in olive oil with some garlic chili flakes and then add a touch of soy sauce.

LarochelleV, I don't have access to a BBQ, but lemon topping, hrm...
I'm also thinking balsamic, but I'm wondering if something else should go with the balsamic...

prettyrainbow, I could try eVOO, I just can't see the flavour going well. Hrm, the parboil then sautee part sounds interesting. Touch of soy, yum!

Steamed only. Boiling just boil away all the nutrients and taste.
