A new take on Brussels sprouts

by | Dec 5, 2015 | Blog, Healthy Recipes, Senior Community Meals | 0 comments

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Brussels sprouts are in full swing this time of year. They are a cold weather veggie which means that you’re probably seeing them pop up in many holiday recipes. Interestingly, Brussels sprouts taste best and sweetest after enduring a couple of light frosts, so now is the perfect time to give these nibbles a try. While roasted Brussels are a common (and delicious) way to incorporate these cruciferous veggies into a meal, you can try eating them raw in a salad for a little variety. This yummy, coleslaw-esque dish is quick, nutritious, and requires no cooking!
