10 Recipes That Will Make You Fall in Love With Brussels Sprouts


If you grew up with the same mindset as I did (wildly imaginative) then you may have had an adversity to Brussels sprouts. For some reason as a child, I swore on my Polly Pocket set that Brussels sprouts were little alien heads (I know, I was a weird kid—I also believed dates were bugs.) As hard as my parents tried, I refused to eat them. Somewhere along my life, years later, I realized that Brussels sprouts weren’t a foreign entity and were actually very delicious.

Brussels sprouts, which fall into the same cruciferous category of vegetables as broccoli and cabbage, provide plenty of antioxidants that help provide optimal health, are low in calories, and offer our body protein and vitamins A, B6, C, and K.

Though small in size, these leafy green buds pack plenty of folate, calcium, potassium, iron, and fiber. Whether you prefer them roasted, boiled, sautéed, or shredded into a slaw, there are plenty of reasons why you should enjoy Brussels sprouts. If you’re having trouble incorporating them into your meals, try one of the below 10 ways to enjoy them.
