Making a Comeback:
Brussels Sprouts

As a kid, you pushed them around on the plate, and now you can’t get enough of them – Brussels sprouts have made a comeback. From restaurant chefs to food bloggers, cooks everywhere are giving Brussels sprouts a delicious makeover. Check out these three recipes for inspiration on how to start enjoying these cruciferous greens.

Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic & Cranberries from Pioneer Woman

The Pioneer Woman gives Brussels sprouts tang and a touch of sweetness with a rich balsamic glaze and dried cranberries.

Momofuku-Style Brussels Sprouts from Food52

No more boiling or buttering or drowning in cream. From New York’s own Momofuku restaurant, this Asian-inspired preparation will make your mouth water.

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Chestnuts from My Recipes

For an indulgent twist, pair Brussels with oil-roasted chestnuts and bacon. This dish is finished with a dash of nutmeg for depth of flavor.

Still not convinced? Consider the nutritional facts. Packed full of vitamins A and C, dietary fiber and folic acid, a half-pound of Brussels sprouts have fewer than 80 calories.
