Golden Winter Soup, Brussel Sprouts and Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Brussel Sprouts

I tried a new vegetable tonight: Brussel sprouts. I've always been afraid of brussel sprouts. Maybe because I grew up hearing how awful they are.

Now, I hear how awesome they are. I finally worked up the nerve to try them for myself. I covered them olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted them at 400 for about 30 minutes.

The verdict? Meh. I didn't really like them. They just didn't live up to the hype.

But I'm not giving up.

I served them along with Golden Winter Soup, which I originally made last winter, and goat cheese toasts. The I loved the soup and goat cheese bruschetta. The brushcetta was fantastic. But then again, I love vinaigrette and goat cheese. You really couldn't go wrong.

What foods or dishes have you tried that didn't live up to the hype?

awww, I love brussels sprouts and am sorry that your didn't come out well. It looks like you may have cooked them too long- when they get dark like that they can get bitter. Theres a recipe on my site for brussels with cranberries thats really good - I recommend giving it a try when you're feeling brave
