It wasn't too long ago that Brussels Sprouts were derided by kids and adults alike, scorned for their sogginess and other supposed sins. But these cruciferous gems have reclaimed the high ground, and these days they are the darlings of the vegetable world, showing up in magazines, cooking shows, upscale restaurants, and family kitchens. Trader Joe's has made it easier than ever to enjoy these nutritious sprouts, offering Trader Joe's Shaved Brussels Sprouts in our fresh produce section.
Shaved Brussels Sprouts are just that – nothing else. They can be used raw in salads and slaws, or cooked in any number of ways. Sauté them in a bit of olive oil and garlic, and drizzle them with honey just before you take them off the heat. You can also oven-roast them in a 425ºF oven for a few minutes with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of freshly ground salt and pepper. The addition of a little bacon here never hurts, either.
We're selling Shaved Brussels Sprouts in a 10 ounce bag for $2.29*, a terrific price for a product that makes it so easy to enjoy this never-again-under-appreciated vegetable.
*Ounces, price and recipes may vary by region: a 10 ounce bag of Shaved Brussels Sprouts is $2.79 in our Texas, East Coast, Midwest and Southeast stores.
