I’m curious by nature, but in my 26 years I had never tried “miniature cabbages”. I decided it’s time, so I looked for a recipe that won’t take long – just in case I didn’t like the result.
The Brussels Sprouts has proven to be more than delicious. Even more, the “small sister” of regular cabbage is packed with vitamins and minerals. 100 grams will bring in just 43 calories, 0 grams of fat, 9 grams of carbs (2.2 sugars and 3.8 fibres), and more than 3 grams of proteins. For the same quantity, your body will receive 195% of the Daily Recommended Dose (DRD) of vitamin K, 125% for vitamin C and over 10% DRD of vitamin A, B6, folates, potassium and manganese.
“Strong essences come in small bottles” – very true for Brussels Sprouts. However, you should avoid it – and any other vitamin K-rich foods – if you are under treatment with anticoagulants (warfarin-based medicine, like Coumadin, that thins blood), as there would be a risk of haemorrhages.
