During the week of Thanksgiving, the last thing on my mind was veggies. I was trying to prepare a tremendous amount of desserts the days leading up to the holiday and I had my mind set on the perfect balance of indulgence on Thanksgiving day. So, vegetables got put on the back burner. But, that’s alright because I am bringing them back this week.
I tried brussels sprouts last winter and had to spit them out and throw them away. Blech, I hated them. Their bitterness and mushy texture turned me straight away.
So, what veggie did I eat with dinner last night?
Roast them in the oven with a squirt of maple syrup, garlic and some butter and they turn into a vegetable sent from the gods 😉
[i heart butter- my mantra.. always use the real stuff!!]
The bitterness of the vegetable was actually nice with the hint of sweetness from the maple syrup. And the mushiness turned into a desirable crunch. Yum!
What is your most hated vegetable that you learned to love?
