Brussels and Bacon

Its late November and Brussels sprouts are in season. They are an extremely nutritious low carb vegetable, read more about their benefits on Dr Mercolas blog.

For people who find them too strong in taste, the key is to avoid overcooking them, about 10 minutes of steaming is more than enough. The other option is to jazz them up by roasting them.

Here they are trimmed, quartered and roasted at 180 deg C for 20 minutes with a good big knob of butter and 200g of chopped up bacon rashers. Stir half way through cooking to avoid some leaves getting burnt. Add a dash of balsamic vinegar at the end of you wish.
