Told ya I would curry them Brussels Sprouts. Curry is such a broad term. It can mean stew, gravy, or dry vegetable preparation. Some of the indian dishes just cant be properly translated:) In this curried dish, brussels sprouts and potatoes are cooked in my basic onion tomato gravy. This gravy can be pretty much used as a base for most vegetables, lentils and beans. Depending on the veggies and beans used, the spices, quantities and style of cooking sometimes varies and you get a completely new gravy/curry! This is not a very liquidy gravy and makes for a great side with any meal.
Of course we made some roasted brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, pepper( and added paprika). Roasted ones pretty much turn up whenever you look for a brussels sprouts recipe. I dont know why this vegetable has a bad name. I dont think we ate these often, mainly because we have so many other vegetables that we eat. and why would you pick it up by choice when you already heard not so tasty things about it.:). but, we got these bright and fresh locally grown beauties in our weekly farm delivery..So boo ya! we will make it so delicious that you bet you will go and buy them on your next grocery trip.. yes? no?
Brussels sprouts like Kale are cruciferous and rich in Vitamins K and C, and antioxidants!
