Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Prepare Brussels Sprouts?

Wash and dry the Brussels sprouts (no need to soak them, but you should rinse them to remove any dirt; even bagged Brussels sprouts should be rinsed). Trim off the tough stem end and discard any brown or shriveled outer leaves. Slice and use as desired.

Can I Wash and Cut Brussels Sprouts the Day Before?

Absolutely! Just make sure your Brussels sprouts are very dry before you store them and store them in the refrigerator. You can clean Brussels sprouts up to 2 days in advance.

How Do I Keep Brussels Sprouts from Tasting Bitter?

Brussels sprouts do have some natural bitterness. High temperature cooking, such as roasting and sautéing, will typically remove it. For raw preparations, use acid to temper the bitterness and if possible, let your Brussels sprouts marinade (such as the Brussels Sprouts Slaw). If your Brussels sprouts still taste bitter, try squeezing a little lemon juice over the top.

Best Pairings for Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts go best with hearty proteins, especially meat and firm, flaky fish like salmon. If you’re serving a carb-heavy meal, such as pasta, add Brussels sprouts for a green side. Crispy Brussels sprouts are also a healthy alternative to fries and can be served with burgers and sandwiches.
