"Brussels sprouts are really quite versatile."
-Yotam Ottolenghi, Chef

The refrigerator light goes on...

Brussels sprouts are great but misunderstood. If you overcook them, they will become bitter, but these, slow roasted with spice and a bit of sweetness, are really delicious: roasted flavor with spice that just happens to be good for you.

This is mildly spicy and if you like spicier food, you can use a bit more cayenne. Add 1/4 teaspoon at a time.

Brussels Sprouts

The rule of thumb for this tiny member of the cabbage family is to buy small ones and buy them as fresh as possible. Even though they look like little cabbages, they actually grow off the sides of a thick stalk and can be found in the market this way now (and if you do, buy them).

Try to use them the day that they are purchased, as there is less time for them to develop a bitter flavor.

There�s a lot of fiber in these little guys. Each serving has almost five grams.
