Dijon Garlic Brussel Sprouts

Home » Dijon Garlic Brussel Sprouts


One of my favorite food trends of 2013 was Brussels sprouts. It became a hit in restaurants in 2012 and at home in 2013. Those micro cabbages are versatile, delicious, and you’ll feel good about eating them because they’re traditionally hated vegetables. C’mon, you know eating long-hated Brussels sprouts can make you feel a little bit superior. Wait, maybe it’s just me. This time I roasted them off so you can stuff them with a few crispy leaves and drizzle with a creamy Dijon garlic sauce.
