Chef Nicky Makes Eating Brussels Sprouts Enjoyable

Filed under: Low-carb Recipes — @ March 8, 2008

Brussels sprouts that actually taste good? This I gotta see!

If I had to name for you the perennial least favorite foods of all time for most people, there’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that Brussels sprouts would be at or near the top of that list. These little miniature cabbages used to repulse me so badly as a child that just the smell of them in the air would trigger an uncontrollable gag reflex that I couldn’t hold back. It was THAT gross to me!

Now that I’m older (not THAT old!) and my palate has changed somewhat from that fat, freckle-faced little boy who hated Brussels sprouts three decades ago (after all, I ate some escargot for the first time in my life on my cruise last week–something I NEVER would have tried as a kid!), I’m willing to take some risks on foods that used to not suit my tastebuds very well. Because of this recipe from Chef Nicky (aka “The Racing Chef”), I’m willing to take that chance on the Brussels sprouts.

So, stop turning up your nose at Brussels sprouts and give this unique creation by “The Racing Chef” a try for yourself. ENJOY! :)


1 Pound Brussels sprouts (Fresh/ Cleaned/ Trimmed) I like to cut an X into the stem of the Brussels sprouts so that the water can get in the stem for even cooking
