Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts

We love brussels sprouts at home!
They may have had a ‘bad rap’ while you were growing up but these tasty veggies are the perfect side dish for any meal. This dish is free of gluten, dairy and soy.

Raw Brussels sprouts contain excellent levels of vitamin C and vitamin K, with more moderate amounts of B vitamins, such as folic acid and vitamin B6 (USDA nutrient table, right); essential minerals and dietary fibre exist in lesser amounts (table).

As with broccoli and other brassicas they contain sulforaphane, a phytochemical under basic research for its potential anticancer properties. Although boiling reduces the level of sulforaphane, steaming and stir frying do not result in significant loss.

Consuming Brussels sprouts in excess may not be suitable for patients taking anticoagulants such as warfarin since they contain vitamin K, a blood-clotting factor. In one such reported incident, eating too many Brussels sprouts may have countered blood-thinning therapy.
