After seeing this fun post over on Treehugger today and posting about the ever versatile and tasty Cabbage earlier this week … it seemed like a good time to tackle the itty bitty cabbage we all know and love (or will soon!). That’s right the Brussels Sprout. We grow these in the garden because they look so fun (think of a stalk with big green leaves and little tiny cabbages all over it) but alas, our growing conditions are usually a little rough on them. They tend to either be slug eaten or bitter due to the high heat at the Children’s Garden throughout the summer.
However … if you have a chance to pick these up at your local Farmers Market do try a few of these great recipes (the trick is to roast or sauté them to bring out the best flavours – DO NOT BOIL!).
Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Orange Butter Sauce – Can be made vegan
Wine Glazed Brussels Sprouts – A little fancier
Here’s a List of 25 Brussels Sprouts Recipes – There’s Even One FOR CAKE!
So I thought we had enough recipes here and then I found one that calls for shiitake mushroom bacon … It sounds so good I couldn’t help but add it here! Let us know what you think in the comments below 🙂
