That is a big bowl of health right there. Yes siree bub, it’s healthy. You might be thinking, “What’s going on? Where am I? Where are the cookies? Where are the simple carbohydrates?” I hear you. But I am trying to branch out. A little. Sometimes. Also this is the recipe that the Doristas voted into the #1 slot this month so I didn’t really have a choice. It’s not super-ghastly like liver so I just thought I would give it a try. Plus I have eaten this amazing shaved Brussels sprouts & bacon salad that my neighbor makes several times so it was a another “What the hell?” moment.
I had to go to three different grocery stores on Tuesday to find the sprouts and the squash – are these not winter veggies? I was really annoyed with my preferred store because it forced me to go Aldi’s (a scary experience) and the other grocery store in town that is laid out really poorly and has the tightest parking lot ever. EVER! But I will say that their produce section was stellar and had what I needed so they aren’t totally worthless I guess.
I think if I ever make this again I will just roast it on a cookie sheet and be done with it, but the foil packets were fun to try this once. I wish I would have taken them out a few minutes sooner because things were a little too soft, but other than that I pretty much enjoyed this dish. I love squash a lot so the sprouts were the only thing to worry about and they weren’t bad. I didn’t love, love, love them but I did love the smug feeling of healthfulness I got when I realized I was voluntarily eating Brussels sprouts for dinner. Yeah, who’s a grown-up? ME!
