3/21/2011 Little Cabbage Patch “Kids”
So, when I was growing up, I loved those little Cabbage Patch dolls. I remember thinking how cute the picture was of them “growing” from a field of little mini cabbages!
Brussel Sprouts ARE little cabbages, and they are oh so cute!!
Brussels sprouts are a cultivar of the same species that includes cabbage, collard greens, broccoli, kale, and kohlrabi; they are cruciferous. They contain good amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid and dietary fiber.
So, roast up these little cabbages! Toss in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Cook on a pan for 30 min. in a 375 degree oven.
Roasting brings out a unique flavor with any vegetable, try roasting your vegetables for a kid-friendly approach to vegetables!
In all honesty, because that is what I want for my readers…. I was not a huge fan of the roasted flavor. Hubby really liked them. Kids tried them, and said they were not bad, but prefered their raw carrots instead. We will keep trying, as with all vegetables!
