In the Kitchen: Brussels Sprouts
Do you say "Brussel sprouts" or "Brussels sprouts"? Since it's spelled "Brussels sprouts" - Brussels being the capital of Belgium - you're supposed to pronounce the "s" at the end of Brussels. I've always left the "s" silent. Silly me. Here's a great recipe for Brussels sprouts...for lovers of these little cabbages and non-lovers alike!
Oven Roasted Garlic Brussels Sprouts
2 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved 5 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 cup water 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Move oven rack to the upper third and preheat to 425 degrees.
In a 9x13 inch baking dish, toss together Brussels sprouts, garlic, water, oil, salt and pepper and spread out in a single layer.
Bake for 40-50 minutes until caramelized to taste, tossing once about 25 minutes into cooking time. Remove from oven and toss Brussels sprouts in the pan scraping up brown bits into the sprouts.
