I find that if you steam & season them right, they are delicious alone! I usually use some Italian seasonings such as Thyme and Oregano and some garlic.

Here's a few recipes from a healthy website:

Hope you find that one of those suites your tastebuds! They ALL look good to me!

They are fabulous roasted. My husband hates brussel spouts but devours them when I roast a batch.

Trim and cut them in half, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with kosher salt and roast until turning brown on the edges. Stir them up a couple of times while cooking. They pick up a beautiful flavor cooked this way. Yum!

My favorite way to fix brussel sprouts is to sautee them. Use a little olive or canolla oil or non-stick cooking spray. Split them in half lengthways and sautee on medium heat until tender and just slightly browned. You can add some onions or mushrooms or peppers if you like. They are also quite tastey topped with just a little fat free vanilla yogurt.

Motivation without information is useless.

Willpower is nothing more than wishful thinking.

Discipline is practicing something until it becomes a habit.

My vegan brother-in-law likes them steamed... then chilled and sliced into salads.

I like them roasted in the oven with a little olive oil and sea salt.

I think it is best - and easiest - to just steam them, then add a little balsamic vinegar. MMMMMM!!!! I love these so much - I'm envious you have them! They always seem just a little too pricey lately for me to justify buying any, but I might have some in the freezer... I'm gonna go check!

My favorite way to fix them is to cut them in half through the core so they don't fall apart, and then saute them with some chopped up turkey bacon and a little olive oil- just a tsp or so depending on how many you have. Since they are fresh you may want to blanch them for a few minutes to soften them up. Brussels are yummy!

Anyone have a good recipe for Brussel Sprouts. I bought a small bag of fresh ones today at the market, but don't know what to do with them other than steam them. Any suggestions???
