Once vilified as nasty green things on your childhood plate, Brussels sprouts have stepped into the limelight in recent years. From trendy bar appetizers to hearty entrees, Brussels sprouts are becoming more popular, and rightfully so. With Brussels sprouts season underway, we’ll be stocking up at farmers markets, grocery stores and roadside farm stands. Whether you simply roast them or throw them in a salad, these six recipes will help Brussels sprouts season get off to the right start.

But you’ll be happy you did. Get the recipe here.
