as right as you are about greens, you're just as wrong about brussels sprouts. i love them. steam them until they're just barely tender, then cut them in quarters (center should still be a little crisp). render bacon, sweat shallots, reduce red wine vinegar to a glaze, then toss the sprouts in that. finish with chopped pistachios or walnuts. good stuff.
