I oven roasted these brussels sprouts @400 degrees (30-40 min) with fresh garlic on a cookie sheet, added a little kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. I also sautéed some fresh green beans with a little low sodium chicken broth. I decided to add them together. I served them with a roasted turkey breast and baked sweet potatoes.
Brussels sprouts contain Sulforaphane, a chemical believed to have potent anti-cancer properties. They are high in Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and Beta-Carotene, and contain Vitamin B6, Thiamine, and Potassium, They also have more protein than most vegetables and are high in fiber and great for the digestive tract and lowering the risk of colon cancer: 1 cup = 6g fiber, 65 calories.
