If you're an avid Brussels sprouts hater, scientists claim your dislike may be written in your DNA. But we at HuffPost Taste think you've just never tasted a good Brussels sprouts recipe -- and we're going to change that.

Sure, they can taste bitter if not picked at the right time and they don't smell great when boiled, but if you roast them, sautée them or grill them you end up with something that tastes sweet and nutty -- and delicious.
