I find that most frozen veggies, when thawed, are about the same consistency as ones that were blanched. (except broccoli- defrosted frozen broccoli is pretty squishy!)

I use defrosted frozen Brussels sprouts for roasting with good results...actually you don't even have to defrost them- right in the oven frozen seems to work just fine! I used to spread them on the pan around the edges of frozen pizza so I could get my veggies even when I was eating prepackaged junk food!

Who knew a thread on Brussels sprouts would generate this many replies?!

If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning.

LOL!

Sprouts also go great when substituted for cabbage with a nice Corned Beef!

Dharma, I agree with you that most frozen veggies, including brussels sprouts, come out fine if not overcooked. I generally cook them less than the package instructs.

I steamed some fresh brussels sprouts the other night, over top of the pasta I was cooking. Tonight I'm grilling tuna steaks, so I think I'll toss the leftover sprouts (which were somewhat undercooked the other night) in some olive oil, balsamic, and fresh thyme, and throw them on next to the tuna. I'm thinking they'll get hot and a little caramelized but not overdone.

Georgia... I like all my veggies crispy!
Once frozen, the ice crystals that form from the freezing breaks down the cell walls, they all turn to mush, for me anyway...
The only frozen veggies I like are peas, corn, ocra and french cut string beans...
Otherwise I buy fresh...
Esp. with a leafy veggie like sprouts...
I wouldn't freeze lettuce or cabbage... sprouts are basically little cabbages...
and frozen certainly would not work with my original post... Grilled Sprouts...
and fresh sprouts are available all year round now... at least in the NY/NJ area...
Just My opinion...

Okra is nasty in any form UNLESS it's deep-fried or cooked in something very acidic (tomatoes can work) to cut through the mucous!

Frozen spinach is pretty gross too, but all other veggies I like any way they're made! Crunchy or mushy, raw or burnt, I rarely meet a veggie I don't love!

Hey, Elaine, you could always move back to the states, and you too could have fresh veggies!

Elaine, Have you ever tried that veggie stand/open market in Orleans, near Yvettes?
Looks like they have a lot of fresh veggies on hand....
