Serving suggestions: rice, potatoes, steak …

NOTES: Peel off the outer, loose yellow leaves if you care about tenderness. “Ewwwww” is what I normally associate with brussels sprouts, but this recipe made me a liker of these tiny cabbage balls. Plus they are packed with various disease-fighting nutrients, you’d be doing your body a huge favor if you can learn to love brussels sprouts!! Perhaps you’d be brave enough to serve them at dinner parties around Christmas time? 😉
