Brussels Sprouts can be described as leafy mini cabbages. They are green or yellowish in color and grow on thick, long stalks and are typically picked off by hand in the winter season. They are an excellent source of Vitamin K and C, folate, dietary fiber and iron. Brussels Sprouts are also a powerful cancer prevention vegetable. They can be boiled for soups or roasts, or chopped up and added to stir- frys. Or try them as a side dish with hollandaise sauce!
