Here’s a great way to in­tro­duce chil­dren to Brus­sels sprouts. All you need to do is boil the Brus­sels sprouts in plenty of wa­ter un­til soft, but not mushy. Im­me­di­ately drain and set aside. See Note 1.

NOTE 2: To eas­ily make car­rot match­sitcks, run a veg­etable peeler down a peeled car­rot, cre­at­ing long rib­bons. Stack a few at a time, cut into 1-inch seg­ments and then cut into thin sliv­ers.
