Have you ever wondered how brussel sprouts grow? Yeah, me neither. Strolling through Trader Joe’s produce section, I found these babies on the end cap. Who knew brussel sprouts could be so beautiful?
Speaking of beautiful…
and tough. Enough of that. That’s what the stalk looks like after you pull the sprouts off.
Back to beautiful. But seriously, if you haven’t tried brussel sprouts since you were a kid, you need to give them another try.
They have great flavor and texture, but also make a really good contrast to the meal when you have a lot of other heavy foods on the menu.
In short, give brussel sprouts a try. They might just surprise you.
