Steaming and boiling use moist heat, and moist heat can make Brussel Sprouts mushy and stinky—not a good combo. Give them the treatment they deserve by roasting them instead. If they’re cut in half, roast them with the cut side down to make the most out of their sweet roasted flavor.
How do you keep brussel sprouts crispy after cooking?
