Grilled Brussels

Grilled Brussels

I’ll confess that Brussels sprouts used to be on my list of foods to avoid.  That’s because every time I had them,  I thought they had a bitter taste, even if they were cooked in a sauce.

Then one day my physical therapist, who is a vegetarian, told me about this recipe.  He said that they were definitely not bitter, and that when his five kids were young, they loved these Brussels sprouts so much, that he and his wife had to count them out to make sure each child got his fair share.   I decided it was worth a try, and boy am I glad I did because now I love Brussels sprouts.  That bitter taste is cooked right out when you grill them in coconut oil.

The coconut oil can be found at your grocery store near the vegetable oils, and it’s worth buying, even if you only use it for this one recipe.  They’re delicious!

  1. I love roasted Brussels sprouts, but do you think we could grill them on a grill pan on the actual grill? I wouldn’t want them to dry out but if we have the grill going, I’d like to use one cooking source instead of several!


  2. Kelsey, I don’t see why that wouldn’t work. I might just try it myself the next time we barbecue.

  3. Oooh, I love brussel sprouts and I’m always looking for new ways to cook them. My mum used to make a sort of stir fry with sliced brussel sprouts, Spanish onions and bell peppers with some bacon. That’s another way to guarantee all the sprouts get eaten 😛

  4. Mmmm! That sounds delicious, Sarah. Thanks for sharing! I just might have to try that.
