When I moved out, I started eating all those vegetables I didn't like before, and all the vegetables and spices my mom didn't like. And I realized they were all very tasty! yum broccoli!
But Brussels sprouts were different because of a story with which my mother terrorized me. She told me that once she was eating some, and she opened one and it was full of worms. You probably think it's not big deal, but I hate HATE bugs of all types. I cannot be around them. Never. And that day I decided to never ever eat Brussels sprouts in my life.
And then I grew up.
No, seriously, I realized that at least I had to try again. And most importantly, I had to try not to boil them (I figured it wasn't the best way to find out if I like them or not...). And I saw some of you have roasted them so...
I mixed them with a bit of olive oil and a bit of maple syrup and a bit of cream of balsamic and to the oven they went!
I had them with salad. Awesome salad by the way!
And with a soy Schnitzel from Aldi (which I liked the first time but this time...meh...I don't know if I'll buy it again, it tasted too fake!)
And with shiitake pickles and savory vegan biscuits. OK, these were my first biscuits ever, and I know realize why it's usually covered with gravy. I've learned my lesson! They were very good, but they tasted a bit boring just plain.
So, are you waiting for a verdict? I mean... I ate them three times! that must be a good sign! Well, I'll tell you, I liked them. Yes, I like Brussels sprouts.
And I halved them all to avoid disgusting surprises!
