Most people feel pretty strongly about Brussels sprouts, whether they love them or hate them. But if you hated them as a kid, I strongly encourage you to give them another chance! (Especially if you grew to expect them to be stinky and mushy – there’s better ways.)
Brussels sprouts are small leafy vegetables that look like little cabbages. In fact they are part of the same family as cabbages, broccoli, and cauliflower. You can usually find them in the grocery store year round, but they are in peak season in fall and winter.
As you’ll see in this series, there’s lots of options for preparing your sprouts, including not cooking them at all. That’s right, you can shave the Brussels sprouts and use them raw in a salad.
They can also be cooked by roasting, braising, sautéing, or one of my favorite ways, in the air fryer. You can find lots of great recipes and tips for Brussels sprouts below. Enjoy!
