Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Initially when I discovered how great brussel sprouts are in terms of nutritional values, I was excited and wanted to try. Well I have to admit my attempts were failed miserably. I realized, I tried to "Indianize" it by using some of our spices. So I went and got it again to try. This time I let it sit little longer in the refrigerator, that brought out it's STRONG smell out. Which put me off before I could even try cooking with it. I swore off against buying them and wasting.

Down the line, again I wanted to give them a try. This time I kept it simple and did these roasted brussel sprouts! Oh My. We are all converts now at home. These are not only beautiful to look, it's crunchy from outside and soft inside. The benefits of brussel sprouts are outstanding. They are high in Vitamin K and C and tons of beneficial vitamins and minerals. To read more on the benefits visit here. I wanted to share my experience with you all, to give you a sense of what to expect with Brussel sprouts. Also, never give up on trying out new veggies. :o)
