Tips for Brussels Sprouts Recipes
- Try to buy brussels sprouts that are the same size so they cook at the same rate.
- If you have some large and some small, cut the larger ones in half so they are similar in size.
- Shredded Brussels are great added to pasta and served raw in salads. This can be done with a knife or mandolin but most stores carry shredded Brussels sprouts or Brussels sprout slaw that can be used in recipes.
- Keep unwashed Brussels sprouts in a bag or vegetable container in the fridge for up to a week.
- Shredded Brussels can be washed and dried (use a salad spinner if you have one) and kept in a bag in the fridge for up to 1 week.
- To freeze Brussels sprouts for later, they need to be blanched. Simply boil them for about 3-5 minutes and then plunge them into ice water to stop them from cooking. Dry them well before freezing.
- Use fresh unless the recipe directs you to use something else. Frozen Brussels have a different texture and can be watery in some recipes.
- Use Brussels sprouts in recipes in place of broccoli or asparagus. The timing might need to be adjusted but the flavor will go well with most recipes.
