Brussels sprouts are one of the most hated vegetables out there, next to spinach, broccoli and eggplant. Brussels sprouts are bitter if they are picked at the wrong time, give off a strong odor if they are over cooked and never taste right if they have been frozen. However, Brussels sprouts didn’t deserve their bad reputation and if you learn how to cook them correctly, you might learn to love them.
