Ingredient: Brussels Sprouts
Origin: Belgium, in the early 13th Century
Brussels sprouts have become a trendy vegetable over the past few years, and it’s easy to understand why. These miniature cabbages, who belong to the same family as cauliflower, kale and broccoli, are packed with incredible health benefits. Brussels sprouts have an excellent source of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids. And when it comes to cooking with Brussels sprouts, they are very versatile; try sautéing them in olive oil, frying them until crispy, and roasting them in a 375 degree F oven until tender and browned in spots.
