It’s hard not to find a bushel of brussels sprouts somewhere in our fridge during this time of year. Lucky enough to be living in a area that nurtures fruits and vegetables year round, the rest of the year we’ll score a bag every few weeks at the farmers markets. Because we’re so spoiled by mild weather, we can almost always have brussels sprouts for dinner or sometimes, as the whole meal.
Is there a word beyond “obsessed”? If there is, it would describe us perfect. We’re beyond obsessed about brussels sprouts.
Back in the early days of our blog, a couple of the first recipes were a roasted brussels sprouts recipe and a curry brussels sprouts. Since then, we’ve shared a multitude of dishes with these cute little orbs of green and we’ve seriously been limiting ourselves. If we shared a recipe for every time we roasted brussels sprouts, we’d probably scare everyone away from all the cruciferous smell. Maybe it’s a good thing that we only limit ourselves to sharing two brussels sprouts recipes a year. We’d be known as the “stink” blog.
