Love thy green.....Brussel Sprouts


Eat brussel sprouts
Because my folks
Don't know my where abouts
Brussel sprouts, brussel sprouts
Oh boy, how I hate brussel sprouts

Some of you might have the same experience when asked to take the tiny little cabbage when you're young. Luckily my folks don't have to force me to take my brussel sprouts as I love my green ( Brussel sprouts not very common back then in Malaysia ) . It's considered luxury green as it's mainly imported.

When I noticed sprouts in supermarket it reminds me Christmas just around the corner. Brussel sprouts are the main green during this season. My cousin Ann, had not seen brussel sprouts grown on stem as in the pics.



This tiny little green are loaded with goodness especially anti-cancer properties. Don't boil them as the Chinese do as the goodness will be loss into the water you used to boil them but rather steam them and stir fry them eventually.
