Okay, so I know how most students/young adults absolutely hate brussels sprouts… (including me) and this is why I sort of made it my mission to turn them into something delicious. Yep, really! In fact, I think this recipe may become one of your new favourite ways to turn this rather simple vegetable into something special. And yes, it’s very very simple too. What’s not to like?
The reason why I haven’t been blogging a lot lately is because I simply lacked motivation to do, well, anything. I feel tired all the time and even lost a little of my passion for cooking… Help! The stupid thing is, I know that once I’m “creating” I’ll be happy again, and I fell in love with blogging too. It’s just that sometimes I can’t get myself to actually do it, you know?
One thing that definitely helps is having inspiration. Brussel sprouts don’t usually inspire me, but lately I’ve been on a Pinterest search for the best recipes. Why invent the wheel when others have already done it for you? One thing I noticed is that a popular way to use Brussel sprouts is to roast them. I had never thought of this before! I’m not used to roasting vegetables as my parents never used to do that so I’m definitely excited about trying more of those recipes. Like these two I personally love:
So I’m quite curious, what’s your favourite way to eat Brussel sprouts? I’ll show you my version if you show me yours 😉
