|Brussels Sprouts by Carolisa Pomerantz|
Brussels Sprouts are cruciferous vegetables, of the same family as cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. They get their name from the shape of the flowers. The petals resemble a cross. Cruciferous vegetables are very healthy, rich in vitamin C and soluble fiber with many other nutrients and phytochemicals that have proven anti-cancer properties.
Like mushrooms they are better eaten cooked. Raw cruciferous vegetables can interfere with the production of thyroid hormone.
I have to admit that until my most recent birthday, Brussels Sprouts were my least favorite vegetable. Then I ate sprouts prepared according to this recipe by Carolisa Pomerantz. It's simple to make and yields delicious results. This one serves four.
1 pound Brussels Sprouts
Place the sprouts cut side down on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment paper to aid in cleaning.
Shave the cheese.
Rotate the sprouts at least once. Cook until they are crisp on the outside and tender inside, for about a half hour.Place the sprouts in the bowl, sprinkle with cheese just prior to serving. If you can't get Grana Padano cheese, feel free to use either Pecorino / Romano or Parmesan Cheese.
