As much as we all love a good steak or chop, we gotta eat some greens sometimes, too. With so many choices out there though, you may not know which way to turn. If you ask us, we’d suggest taking a chance, braving the unique aroma and cooking up some Brussels sprouts.
These little sprouts look like mini cabbages and share some of the health benefits of them as well. Vitamin C and Vitamin K abound while B vitamins such as folic acid and B6 show up here, too (thanks, USDA nutrient table, for the info). There have even been a few studies that claim certain anti-cancer properties are found in the vegetable.
Sure, you can eat Brussels sprouts raw, but that’s pretty boring. Bacon is a common choice to add to these greens, but what about prosciutto? Or try making them into a pasta. You can even create a healthy snack by cooking up some Brussels Sprouts Chips.
The opportunities are endless with these nutrient rich sprouts. Don’t believe us? Just head out to the store and grab a bag of Brussels sprouts and try out a few of these 30 delicious recipes. They’ll leaf you speechless (sorry, had to do it).
