Brussels Sprouts are these wonderful little cabbage looking vegetables. They have a sweet, nutty and smoky flavor that’s hard to resist. Brussels vary in taste depending on the size and method of cooking. For maximum flavor we would suggest roasting them to bring out the natural sugars and give them that crispy and caramelized texture yumminess.
