Brussels sprouts used to be on our top 3 most hated vegetables ever list, period. Mushy, bitter and just a mess, really. But about five years ago one of my besties reintroduced them to me. She made pan roasted sprouts with honey glazed pecans and just like thats; love, sweet, crispy and smoky heaven.
Roasting really brings out a smokey, sweet flavor and they crisp up so nice.
I made them for Shad a few years ago and we’ve never looked back. This healthy side dish is perfect for the holidays or sunday dinner.
Brussels sprouts are also a great source of fiber, vitamins and one cup has 4g of protein for only 43 calories.
Brussels sprouts have a lot of a natural, sulfur-based substance with a name that's a bit of a tongue twister: glycosinolate glucobrassicin. Research shows that this compound may help prevent damage to your DNA that raises your chances of getting cancer. It may also stop new blood vessels from growing inside tumors.Webmd.com
