No to the veggies

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?

    I still haven’t quite come to love brussels. I don’t hate them, but I just don’t think I’ve executed them right yet. They’re always too chewey and it turns me off.

    Yours sound good though!
