Yummy Sprouts!

Lately I have been enjoying new food experiences, buying new types of food that I normally do not eat, and exploring new types of cooking methods, like baking and microwaving. Normally I cook using pots and pans, either boiling or frying my foods, but I decided to explore cooking my traditional meals through baking and broiling, and using my microwave oven more often. In that process, I found some vegetables that I normally do not like, very tasty, in fact–down right addictive. One such veggie, in my newly found palate preference, is the tiny Brussels sprout.

I so far like them boiled, but have been told that there are other cooking methods, like frying them, is just as good. I just tried them with a mix of carrots and broccoli, and the taste does not seem to be impeded with the other veggies through boiling. I was also told by my friend, on Twitter, that cutting them in halves, and cooking them with bacon in a frying pan, is a way of cooking and preparing them too. I will have to try that.

I have been cooking lentils too, using the boiling method, but just recently tried them in a frying pan. Surprisingly these little guys are really tasty too. Lentils are so cheap, that I am surprised not more people are eating them that I know of.  I prefer the green and brown ones over the yellow or orange, as each colour seems to have a slightly different cooking method.

I guess braking with old habits and traditions, and exploring new ideas and trying new foods, is the only of exploring newly undiscovered taste experiences.
