brussels sprouts: the ultimate hipster vegetable

Written by , Posted in health and beauty, recipe

CAPES [something empowering] “Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming” (Ralph Waldo Emerson).

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Need some extra shine? Try dabbing a bit of lip gloss on your cheeks.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] Here’s my sister-in-law’s delicious recipe for brussels sprouts: 1) halve the sprouts, 2) toss them in olive oil, salt, and pepper, 3) place them cut side down in an iron skillet pan* and toast them, 4) after they are nice and toasty, mix them around in the pan. Finish with a sprinkle of parmesan. A once socially-hated vegetable is now hipster-cool.


*I don’t have an iron skillet, so I broil them in the oven.
