Brussels sprouts are one of the healthiest vegetables out there because it stimulates the action of certain enzymes in the human cell and strengthens its defence power. It is best to prepare them on the steam because then the useful ingredients remain undamaged. 

Nowadays, Brussels sprouts are incomprehensibly neglected in our area. Some have never tried it, it is not cooked often, and it is even sadder that even when it is on the menu, it is mostly offered without the character or flavour.

Many types of vegetables have been promoted and their benefits have been exaggerated in various magazines or online publications, but this vegetable is without exaggeration one of the healthiest in the world. Broccoli tolerates winter cold very well. And unlike many other vegetable crops, they are just available to us with all the abundance of nutrients they store in their heads. And do you know why many call them superfoods? Because they have anticancer properties, they strengthen immunity and what is especially important for them, they are full of folic acid. And that is very important for all future mothers and those who want to become one.

Brussels sprouts deserve thoughtful culinary preparation because this low-calorie vegetable is a wealth of nutrients. In addition, they are an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C, E and K, and they also contain many minerals: potassium, manganese, iron, magnesium, copper, calcium. Did we mention omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, fibre...?

This vegetable has received considerable attention from the scientific community in the last few years due to the assumption that it has anti-cancer effects, and most studies done so far have shown the truth of this assumption (both in animals and humans). One of the ways in which sprouts protect against cancer is to enhance the stability of our DNA that is prone to damage. It should be noted that the cholesterol-lowering effects are enhanced when sprouts are steamed. Due to the abundance of vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids, Brussels sprouts contribute to the health of the skin and connective tissues, so they are an excellent "beauty food". The menu is also recommended for good digestion, strong bones and strong muscles.

And they go with everything. Use them to make spreads, they are ideal as a snack and they even enhance healthy drinks. Garlic and bacon are a perfect match for them. They also go well with potatoes, pasta, chestnuts. Regardless of the cooking method and recipes used, these little green veggies should definitely become part of your diet.
