Brussels Sprouts




It's not often that I post on vegetables or side dishes. Somehow, I never seem to conjure anything interesting with them. To me, they accompany the dish- even though we eat our fair share of salads and vegetables daily!

Funny enough, I never knew how to appreciate the beauty of brussels sprouts till recently. Maybe it's because I associate them with a bitter after taste when I had the as a kid. My mother in law though, loved it! and even brought some back to KL!

Anyway, I discovered that if I blanched it quickly and cook it in stir fry, it tastes fabulous. I love the crunch and texture of it. A little oyster sauce and mixed it up with other vegetables, it's a great side dish with chinese dishes.



So what are the other ways to cook Brussels sprouts? I can see it in some butter and pine nuts perhaps?

i never had broussel sprouts and i recently read that they just need a quick stir fry like you said, otherwise they give a funny taste.

Whenever I cook rice, I must have at least one of this vegetable stir-fry. Otherwise, I'll feel guilty, hehe...

You can roast it too, in halves or quarters, seasoned with spices.

I found a short-cut, instead of blanching it, I slightly cook it in the microwave. :)
