6. Brussels Sprouts
In old television shows, Brussels sprouts and Lima beans are always considered the bane of every child’s existence, but that’s just because of the old-fashioned tendency to overcook this cruciferous fall vegetable until it turns into a smelly mush. High in vitamin C, Brussels sprouts are a great way to stave off winter colds.
Need a new recipe for those sprouts? The best way we’ve had Brussels sprouts is roasted and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and bacon. Need a healthier alternative? Steamed and shaken with olive oil, fresh garlic, and sea salt is always gorgeous.
