Flavors of the Season: Brussel Sprouts
Brussel Sprouts are in season from September through March. I've never tried to grow them in my garden - maybe next year. Apparently, brussel sprouts are considered sweeter after a frost - who knew? Brussel Sprouts are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. They also have potassium and omega-3s making them a healthy option for anyone.
I know what you are thinking, roasted brussel sprouts are the only way to make brussel sprouts. But that is not true! They are very versatile! They can be used in salads, soups, and I just read an article on how to make frozen brussel sprouts taste good! While I love fresh vegetables sometimes they are too pricy so frozen is a great option.

Roasted Frozen Brussel Sprouts. As promised, here is the article and recipe about roasting frozen brussel sprouts and making them taste good! Can't wait to try it! Click here for the article.
Brussel Sprouts Salad. Oh yes! Keep salads for lunch interesting! You don't need to have boring mixed greens with the same old topping of mushrooms, tomatoes, and green onions. While this recipe includes bacon, I would skip the bacon to keep it vegetarian. Brussels pair well with dried fruit and this recipe uses dried cherries. But dried cranberries would work just as well.

Roasted Gnocchi & Brussel Sprouts. I've never tried to roast gnocchi so I am intrigued with this recipe. It states you don't have to boil the gnocchi because they will cook on the sheet pan with the brussel sprouts. The gnocchi used in the recipe is labeled as "shelf-stable" which I've seen in the supermarket but never thought to use it! Click here for the recipe.
Creamy Fettuccine with Brussel Sprouts. This recipe uses a cream sauce that has it's base in low-fat milk. If you can't digest milk (like me), I'd recommend using a nut milk or hemp milk to substitute. Click here for the recipe.
