Honey Balsamic Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Brussels Sprouts Dish

Here’s the thing about Brussels Sprouts – they’re super underrated. When cooked the right way, they taste sweet. If overcooked, they turn bitter. The most common way to prepare Brussels Sprouts is to roast them. But, I’ve tried 100% roasting with less than appealing results. The secret is to pan fry them in a cast iron skillet first and then transfer them to the oven to roast. Perfection every time.

Shopping Tip: Look for bright green Brussels Sprouts. Yellow leaves and black spots mean they’re beginning to spoil.

Research shows Brussels Sprouts may help prevent cancer and stop new blood vessels from growing inside tumors. Brussels Sprouts are great for regulating blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease and diabetes. And they have carotenoids which are great for eye health.

Ready to add antioxidant-rich Brussels Sprouts to your weekly meal rotation? They’ll deliver vitamin C, vitamin K, fiber and healthy gut bacteria. And the kicker is they stimulate collagen production. —Hey, your skin is calling. It’s time to get brusselin’.
