So following on from the Room 101 thread it seems that opinion is decided on the outcome of sprouts. Before you decide, I think the arguments for and against being sent to the room of total annihilation are ...

FOR

Sprouts are evil incarnate, they are little green blobs sent here by Zarg the Thunderer (mwahahaha) :evil:evil ruler of the planet Mars as a means of taking over planet earth by making us surrender to the evil odours that these little green monsters induce. Those who succumb to the powers of Zarg (mwahahaha):evil: believe that they are lickle ickle cute baby cabbages that should be preserved at all costs - all i can say is "you've been Zarged" and total takeover is imminent so watch the skies for their space ships soon :rolleyes:!

AGAINST

Well of course there isn't any argument against. THEY HAVE TO GO!!!

They scarred me as a child, it taught me not to trust people when I was tricked into thinking they were baby cabbages ... and they hurt my nasal senses, both when being cooked and after being eaten. They just are not nice vegetables ... give me a good leek anyday!

Hmm now the vote is currently even stevens. Do I be nasty and abuse my moderating powers and say any supporters for evil veg get neg repped? Hmm think of Snap's song "I'VE GOT THE POWER" whilst you decide which way to vote. :lol::green::lol:

I LOVE SPROUTS
I can't wait for the sprout season to start (I only like fresh ones) I cook them very lightly so they still have a little crunch - delicious.

Anybody that complains about the smell or after effect has only had them overcooked.

I am setting up the STS - Save the Sprout society - new members welcome:green:

Here we go:lol::lol:

1 lb fresh brussels sprouts
4-6 Tbsp butter
1/2 onion, chopped
Salt and Pepper
1 teaspoon lemon juice or 1 Tbsp Meyer lemon juice, fresh squeezed
1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds
1 Boil in water or steam brussels sprouts for 3-4 minutes until just tender. Split one open to see if it has cooked to the middle. Strain and place in a bowl of ice water to keep the color bright green. Cut into halves.
2 Sauté onions in 2-3 Tbsp of butter in a wide sauté pan until the onions are translucent. Add the brussels sprout halves and 2-3 Tbsp more of butter and cook on medium high heat for several more minutes, until the sprouts have reached your desired level of doneness. Add salt and pepper to taste while the sprouts are cooking. Whatever you do, do not over-cook, as the sprouts will be bitter.
3 Remove from heat, toss in half of the toasted slivered almonds and the lemon juice. Add salt and pepper if needed. Put into serving dish and garnish with the rest of the toasted almonds.
Serves 6-8.
