Fun Facts About Brussels Sprouts

    • What’s in a name? Turns out Brussels sprouts are named for the capital of Belgium, where they are quite popular.
    • They look like baby cabbages, which is fitting. Brussels sprouts belong to the same family of veggies as cabbage.
    • 70 million pounds of Brussels sprouts are produced each year in America alone. California gets the crown for producing the most sprouts of any state.
    • The predecessors of Brussels sprouts are believed to have been cultivated in Ancient Rome. So this vegetable is very old school.
    • Brussels sprouts contain sulforaphane, which is being studied for potential anti-cancer benefits.
    • They contain a ton of vitamin C. In fact, one serving of Brussels sprouts offers four times more vitamin C than an orange.

More Paleo Brussels Sprouts Recipes

Steaming Brussels sprouts is not called for in this recipe, but you should be careful not to overcook the veggies when you do steam them. If they are overly soft and mushy, or if you smell sulfur, you’ve cooked them too long.

With that bit of wisdom, I give you a list of some additional awesome Brussels sprouts recipes that are perfect for your paleo diet.
