Nutritious Brussel Sprouts
The hidden gem of vegetables in my opinion are Brussel Sprouts. They might look like tiny cabbage heads, but they still pack a powerful nutritious punch. There are so many ways to cook them and make them taste great that you could have them with your main course at least twice a week. Having brussels is also a nice change of pace to the typical side salad that you have with your meal. They are loaded with vitamins and minerals that help give our bodies what they need to function properly. The list below has just a few of the benefits of adding brussels to your everyday diet.
- High in Nutrients
- Rich in Antioxidants
- High in Fiber
- Rich in Vitamin K
- May Help Maintain Healthy Blood Sugar Levels
- Contain ALA Omega-3 Fatty Acids
- Help Reduce Inflammation
- High in Vitamin C
This recipe is very simple and easy, but there are so many variations to preparing brussel sprouts that they will never get old!
- 1 pint brussels sprouts (about a pound)
- 4 to 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, to coat bottom of pan
- 5 cloves garlic, peeled
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Trim bottom of brussels sprouts, and slice each in half top to bottom. Heat oil in cast-iron pan over medium-high heat until it shimmers; put sprouts cut side down in one layer in pan. Put in garlic, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Cook, undisturbed, until sprouts begin to brown on bottom, and transfer to oven. Roast, shaking pan every 5 minutes, until sprouts are quite brown and tender, about 10 to 20 minutes.
Taste, and add more salt and pepper if necessary. Stir in balsamic vinegar, and serve hot or warm.
