My Favorite Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Lemme get a quick show of hands.  Who here likes Brussels sprouts?

……….(crickets chirping)

That’s what I thought.

Brussels sprouts rank as one of the healthiest vegetables around, which is of course why no one eats them.

They are basically mini cabbages and are in the powerful Cruciferous vegetable family along with broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collard greens, and others.

Along with vitamins A, C, Folic Acid, and fiber, brussels sprouts also contain three powerful cancer fighting phytochemicals: Sinigrin, Sulforaphane, and Indole-3-Carbinol.
These bad boys have been shown to cause apoptosis (cancer cell suicide), boost DNA repair, and block the growth of new cancer cells.

There are certain vegetables that do not lose their anti-cancer (anti-mutagenic) properties when cooked. Brussels sprouts are one of them! Some others are are eggplant, spinach, pumpkin, garden cress, and chicory greens.

We can’t remember where Micah found this recipe, but  it is our favorite way to prepare brussell sprouts. I could eat this every night!


Cut brussels sprouts in halves or quarters, depending on their size

Put brussels sprouts in a glass baking pan

Add a handful or two of chopped walnuts

Lightly drizzle with olive oil 

Lightly drizzle with maple syrup (or honey)

Who ever came up with adding maple syrup to brussels sprouts is a genius.
The flavors work so well together.

Note: This can also be prepared without oil, drizzle water over the brussels sprouts and add water to the bottom of the pan so they don’t stick.

Bake at 375 for approxmately 25 minutes, or until tender.

Moist, tender, and brown on the edges is what we’re going for.
If you can easily insert and remove a fork, they’re ready.

Prepare and Devour!
