It seems that everyone loves the brussels sprouts that are served in restaurants, but still not too sure how to cook brussels sprouts at home.
The Secret for How to Cook Brussels Sprouts is Chemistry.
Do not overcook. This means do not boil. Brussels sprouts are best roasted, sauteéd, flash fried or served shaved raw and dressed in a salad.
Brussels sprouts take well to any number of ingredients such as nuts, fruit and perhaps even some pecorino cheese. They love an acid splash of citrus or balsamic vinegar, which will do wonders to brighten up the slight note of bitterness. But don’t try too hard because they can dance alone as long as there is olive oil and sea salt. I love this olive oil, and I love this lemon sea salt.
