Yep.

All brought to another level by pepper vinegar. Can't forget that.

Prolly true. Even Mixt Greens now has a kale mix (which was tasty).

It's nice to know I was ahead of the curve on at least one trend. I've been a brussels sprouts lover since I was a wee boy, and those were frozen. Fresh sprouts is divine.

Definitely, brussels are great. The trick is to cook them in such a way that they brown. Steamed or boiled brussels are gross. Roasted is where its at.

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.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on this one as I'm sure you know what you are doing, but IMO there are few vegetables that are not improved by roasting, and brussels are top of this list for me.

To be fair though, bacon + shallots + vinegar glaze is going to make just about anything taste good biggrin.gif

I always blanch my brussels sprouts, then cut them in halves, finish and brown them in a pan. Tastes fantastic.
Kale tastes great. It's just a pita to thoroughly clean it.

i like steamed brussels too. I'm good with steamed until very tender, then toss with some butter, S+P, and maybe a touch of lemon juice.

The wife did up some kale chips last weekend. Seasoned them heavily to disguise the flavor, even the baby ate them - well, at least the parts that didn't crumble as we held them.

And we had brussel sprouts last week. Wife forgot to season them. Little green balls of yuck.
