Every child will tell you that Brussels sprouts are the worst vegetable. Unfortunately, so will many adults! While overcooked Brussels sprouts are deeply unappetizing, properly prepared Brussels sprouts are delicious!
They are high in fiber, and they are in season! While they are cabbage, the smaller they are, the sweeter and more tender they are. If you want something with a more cabbage-like flavor, pick larger ones. Go for ones that are vibrantly green and firm. Here are four low-carb, tasty Brussels sprouts recipes that showcase their greatness!
