Do you know how to cook Brussels sprouts in a way your children might like them better?
Brussel sprouts are such a great source of vitamins and nutrients but children often don’t like their rather strong flavor. I know, I so disliked Brussels sprouts as a child.
My trick is to add a teaspoon of sugar to the boiling water, it doesn’t sweeten the Brussels sprouts but it softens their flavor.
I add some sugar to the boiling water of all strong flavored, bitter or tart vegetables like artichokes, asparagus, endive, etc.
I hope you try my way and that your children or yourselves will like it!
