Brussels sprouts are a savory and healthy addition to your diet. But how to prepare them? Here are some of the best ways to cook Brussels sprouts.
How to Cook Brussels Sprouts
Brussels sprouts are a seasonal vegetable easily identifiable because it resembles a miniature cabbage. In addition to their fun appearance, Brussels sprouts also offer a rich nutrient profile which includes fiber, vitamin K, and vitamin C.
These are some of the best (and most flavorful) ways to cook your Brussels sprouts.
To sauté your Brussels sprouts, heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, then add the halved Brussels sprouts and season with salt and pepper. Make sure to stir frequently and cook until caramelized.
If you prefer your Brussels sprouts roasted, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). Place the halved Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet, add olive oil, and season with salt and pepper, then roast for 40 to 35 minutes.
Steaming is one of the best methods to cook vegetables because it preserves more nutrients than other alternatives. To steam your Brussels sprouts, boil water in a pot with a steamer basket, then place the Brussels sprouts in the basket, cover, and steam for about five minutes or until fork tender.
If you are a fan of hearty dishes, you are going to love Brussels sprouts au gratin. Just boil your sprouts until tender, then chop them and place them on a baking sheet. Sprinkle generously with grated cheese and breadcrumbs and bake them for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
