Roasted Brussels Sprouts

If you don’t think you like Brussels Sprouts, think again. Roasted Brussels sprouts are super. They become sweet, caramelized little cabbage gems, that are hard to resist. Buy small bright green sprouts with compact heads. Store unwashed sprouts in an airtight plastic bag in the refrigerator up to 3 days; longer than that and sprouts will develop a strong flavor. Brussels sprouts, a cruciferous vegetable, high in vitamins A and C, and are a fair source of iron.

What are Brussels Sprouts?

Brussels sprouts said to have been cultivated in the 16th-century Belgium. Brussels Sprouts are a member of the cabbage family and indeed resemble tiny cabbage heads. Many rows of sprouts grow on a single long stalk. They range from 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter; the smaller sprouts are more tender. Brussels sprouts are available from late August through March.

Eating Healthy

We are trying to eat healthier and that means adding more vegetables to our diet. I really like Brussels sprouts but I have never roasted them before. Roasting is a great way to bring out flavor and natural sweetness in many vegetables. Brussels sprouts are no exception. Try roasting Brussels sprouts with shallots and mini sweet peppers, sprinkle on Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning blend, and you’ll have the best side dish ever. You can sprinkle roasted Brussels sprouts with some crispy bacon and Parmesan cheese before serving. So good!!

Roasted Baby Carrots  and Dijon Balsamic Brussels Sprouts are two fantastic recipes you have got to try! For this recipe we used Brussels sprouts by Organic Valley.

Organic Valley started in 1988 in a small farming town in Wisconsin, by a handful of Midwest family farmers. They were fed up with the state of American agriculture. Family farms were going extinct. Friends and neighbors around the Coulee region, (La Crosse, WI area) were discarded by a bankrupt agricultural system. They were told to “Get Big or Get Out!” The farmers all agreed, they didn’t want to be industrial, chemical farmers.

George Siemon and the rest of the farmers banded together. There had to be a better way, a more sustainable way, to continue farming like they always had. In a way that protects the land, animals, economy and people’s health. That’s how the farmer-owned cooperative was born. After weeks of brainstorming, the name Organic Valley thought up by some of the companies first employees was born. Organic Valley soon emerged as the nation’s leading producer of organic dairy.
