Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts
(Brussels Sprouts) Brussels sprouts are members of the cabbage family, which they resemble in miniature form.  They are a good source of dietary fiber and protein, vitamins A and C, and potassium, iron and a small amount of calcium.  Like other cruciferous vegetables, Brussels sprouts have been shown to have cancer prevention properties.  When purchasing, select tightly compact, firm heads with good color and without a strong odor.  See nutritional charts below for raw and cooked Brussels sprouts.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
