I've always steamed Brussels sprouts because I like them on the well-done side. None of that tender crisp business for me. I just don't like cooked vegetables to taste raw. I also only like really overripe bananas, but that's neither here nor there. I saw Ina Garten roast Brussels sprouts and they looked surprisingly good. So, I thought I would try her recipe. I cut the sprouts in half hoping that the interiors would cook all the way through. And they did! They were tender with crispy exterior leaves. Yum. I'll definitely be cooking my sprouts this way from now on.
