Despite popular culture (looking at you Full House,) I'm convinced you can't actually hate brussels sprouts. You just haven't had them like this: pan fried with a decadent red wine glaze.
Growing up I always thought brussels sprouts were fine. I didn’t detest eating them like I did asparagus, but I didn’t particularly enjoy them either. I simply ate them because they were healthy… and, well, my mom told me to. It wasn’t until I was older and started ordering brussels sprouts at restaurants that I realized there is a whole world out there. That there are so many delicious ways to cook brussels sprouts that don’t involve them being steamed. Brussels sprouts, especially pan fried ones, quickly grew to be one of my favorite vegetables. Still, never did I think I could eat a whole big bowl of them for dinner, and actually enjoy it. But hey, here we are, and we’re not going back.
