“Eat your brussels sprouts!” The famous line we all heard in movies growing up and the look of a young child with a disgusted face. That was my brussels sprouts connotation all my life! It wasn’t until then, when I became older and discovered the amazing world of roasting! I can’t express how much better vegetables taste once they are roasted! The flavors come to life, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, roasting gives so much character!
