This simple brussels sprouts and root vegetable hash has a mixture of root vegetables and brussels sprouts. It’s filling and perfect for breakfast or dinner! Just omit the egg for a vegan/vegetarian friendly version! Gluten, grain, and dairy free.
I used to think brussels sprouts were the grossest vegetable in the world. Also, who came up with the name and why does it have so many s’s?
Common sense tells us anything that smells like rotten eggs as it cooks can’t taste much better. I mean, come on!
Worst yet, my mom would boil the heck out of them, so they were, like, rotten egg mush. Yuck.
I hated vegetables. They were disgusting and I was convinced they were only created to torture us kids. I typically ate everything on my plate, except for the pile of green stuff, so my mom did what most parent’s do—played the manipulation game. It might be with the promise of dessert or staying up a little past bedtime. For other poor, unfortunate kids, it’s having to sit at the table until they’ve finished eating them. Or worse yet—have their parent’s feed it to them.
I remember my mom shoveling spoonfuls of veggies into my mouth with the promise that it would help me grow taller and stronger, “like Popeye!” Seriously, mom, why would I want to look like some scruffy, big-armed man who smokes a pipe?
