Would You Rather Eat Beets or Brussels Sprouts?

This week our Top Chef contestants had to cook for a group of kids. Surprisingly both beets and brussels sprouts were used as ingredients. Both of these foods are notoriously unpopular with children, and yet came out as a hit. So tell me, if you had to choose, would you end up eating beets or brussels sprouts?

Where is the option for both! Those are two of my favorite things to eat, not even just two of my favorite vegies! How crazy that people dont like them. I think that means you just havent had them prepared in the right way ;)

There is no both! :( No one seems to understand why I like beets and brussels sprouts. I remember when I was a wee-myself, I apparently managed to eat enough beets that my pee was beet-colored...

i think that i would rather eat brussel sprouts but to be honest, i'm not sure what they taste like since i can't recall if i've ever had them. i just know that i don't care for beets all that much.

Bears eat beets. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica. Hehee Office withdrawal symptoms! Err back on topic, I HATE Brussel sprouts, these nasty little things. I could eat beets every day though.

Hard choice. I totally love them both! Sad to say good-bye to the season (always so easy to tell how long ago Top Chef was filmed b/c of the ingredients).

BOTH!!! Not combined certainly, but they are both SO TASTY, I can't pick one. It's like picking a favorite child!

Brussel sprouts are probably my favorite veggie. I've gotten some strage looks when revealing that piece of information! I like them steamed with balsamic vinegar drizzled over them.

I love beets! so underrated. Brussel sprouts taste to me just like stronger flavored mini cabbages, so if they are not cooked just right...blech.

There's just something about the flavor of beets that I just don't like.
