Brussel sprouts is one of those vegetables you either love it or hate it. I’m on the lucky side, I love them! It’s a seasonal vegetable, typical on winter and not just on Christmas day. If you are also one of those who loves Brussel sprouts and warm salads, why not try this water-mouthing salad? It’s a healthy and delicious recipe.
Roasting the Brussel sprouts with cinnamon, coconut oil will bring out the flavour. You might be surprised how tasty these little cabbages are!
Diet advice: Brussels sprouts are a good source of protein, iron and potassium, and also offer other benefits that can boost your overall health.
Brussels sprouts, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contain sulforaphane, a phytochemical under basic research for its potential anticancer properties. Although boiling reduces the level of sulforaphane, steaming and stir frying do not result in significant loss.
