Oddly enough, when I was a picky kid and my parents had touble getting me to eat my veggies... Brussel sprouts were one of the few things I liked.
It seems like they get a bad rap. People do not like the way they smell when cooked, or they generate digestive gas.
But I try to keep a bag handy, and toss a few into any soup that I make. I eat them near the end, to make sure they've had plenty of time to soak up the broth and become pulpy and tasty.
