In the last few years, Brussels sprouts have risen to the top of the popularity chart. This is a perfect holiday side dish as the jewel tones of the pomegranate seeds, as well as the nuttiness of the hazelnuts add a festive touch a simple plate of vegetables.
Brussels sprouts are high in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, making them a nutritious addition to your diet. A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, Brussels sprouts may reduce the risk of cancer, decrease inflammation and improve blood sugar control. They are full of fiber and when roasted, they have a nutty sweetness to them.
Try roasting a double recipe’s worth and add some to a batch of scrambled eggs for an extra boost of nutrients for breakfast.
