So many people think they don't like brussels sprouts - it's sad, because they're such a wonderfully tasty vegetable! I figure they must have had them prepared badly when they were younger, because everybody I fix them for change their minds about them. My latest conquest was my husband, who thought he didn't like them, either. He has since changed his mind, of course.
This is based on the recipe by Bob Blumer from the "Surreal Gourmet Bites" cookbook. This simple caramelization method transforms this much maligned veggie into a knock-your-socks-off side dish or sweet snack that you won't be able to get enough of!
This recipe is the product of the "I need to go to the grocery store, but don't have time" syndrome. It is a sweet, flavorful rice that is so easy to make. A quick side dish that goes well with meat, poultry, or fish. Even my "Picky Panel of Judges" (A.K.A. "Guinea Pigs") liked it!!
