More About This Recipe
  • Cooking Brussels sprouts is very easy. There are two methods to make them that are the simplest: sautéing them or roasting them in the oven. Cooking them with butter and salt is the traditional preparation; add some cheese and cook them au gratin and you’ll have a completely different dish. But you can also combine them with sabores that are perhaps a little unexpected, such as apple. Cooked Brussels sprouts are very tender and fall apart in your mouth, which is why adding a fruit with a crispier consistency makes it a delicacy. All of us are familiar with the rich properties of this vegetable; let’s make it a part of our weekly diet. The recipe below is very simple, quick to prepare and has a combination of incomparable sabores. This dish is perfect as a side served with meat, or as a noon snack.
