Do you like Brussels Sprouts?
I could not eat Brussels Sprouts for a long time. We didn’t have this vegetable when I was a child and it is still a new kind of vegetable for me. But one day I had it at a very good Japanese restaurant in Tokyo and it changed the whole thing!! It was good. VERY GOOD! The Brussels Sprouts they served were completely different thing, and I realized the Brussels Sprouts I have been eating were all overcooked.
Fresh Brussels Sprouts can be easily overcooked, so we use frozen ones.
Boil some water, add some salt and cook these frozen Brussels Sprouts for 2 minutes. Big ones are maybe still frozen inside, so if you have put a bunch of different sized Brussels Sprouts you need to pick the small ones up from the boiling water before the big ones are done. Just DON’T OVERCOOK THEM!! Drain well and squeeze out water.
1.5 teaspoons of miso
1.5 teaspoon of sugar
1.5-2 Rice Vinegar
You can coat the Brussels Sprouts with the vinaigrette or
you can serve like this. It will be a tasty dish for Bento, too!
