Quick, name a vegetable you don't like?
For some people, that vegetable might be brussels sprouts. And that was true for me until a few years ago when I discovered how delicious they taste roasted. Yes, roasted in the oven tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper. This week's Thursday's Tip is all about how to make an easy and delicious side dish for your next family meal.

My very first memories of tasting brussels sprouts are not pleasant. I was a little girl and my family was invited over to a lovely couple's home in Queens, NY for dinner. They were members in the church my father was the pastor of, and had an amazing vegetable and fruit garden behind their house in the city. We were invited to come pick fruit and have dinner. We sat down to a table set with the finest china and perfectly pressed tablecloth, but my eyes were focused on the brussels sprouts placed on my plate that I wanted nothing to taking, "just one bite" as my father tried to get me to do.
Fast forward all these years later and I finally figured out how to enjoy this vegetable that I have refused to eat for so many years. Roasting the brussels sprouts is easy and brings out a nutty flavor making them taste delicious!
Rinse the brussels sprouts.
Trim the bottoms and remove and loose outer leaves from the brussels sprouts.
Place on a baking sheet and roast in a 425 degree oven until they are golden brown and tender.
