Paleo Roasted Bacon Sliced Brussels Sprouts

Posted by

Growing up I always thought Brussels sprouts were the worst! Brussels sprouts were really the only vegetable that I didn’t eat. I even ate my beets, turnips and spinach! But as I’ve grown up (I’m not sure I really have yet!) and my tastes have evolved, I’ve learned to appreciate these mini cabbages. If you are like me and have never been a big fan of Brussels, I have a few key things that will make them not only palatable but even delicious!

First, you must always buy fresh. Really, it makes all the difference in the world. Second, don’t ever boil them, unless you like boiled cabbage and that sulfur smell. Third, pair Brussels sprouts with an equally strong flavor. What could be a better flavor than bacon?! In this dish, I roast the shredded Brussels sprouts in a savory and umami dressing and top it with bacon. The combination of salty and umami help to balance the strong flavor of the Brussels sprouts so much that this dish is now requested at my Thanksgiving dinner! Just remember to buy fresh, it truly is a game changer.
