Zesty Brussels Sprouts with Raisins

by ADMIN on JANUARY 3, 2013

Brussels sprouts are completely underrated. And I’m a little obsessed.

When you cut them into thin stripes they cook faster and taste less… potent… in your mouth.

Plus adding raisins and orange zest takes away some of the bitterness as well! (But the primary way to ensure Brussels Sprouts remain bitterless is to cook them just enough; not too much and not too little. No pressure. Zesty Brussels Sprouts with Raisins Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 10 mins Total time: 20 mins Serves: 2-4 Ingredients
