Brussels sprouts are part of the large Brassicaceae family (often called brassicas), which also includes broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and kale.
They resemble miniature cabbages but have a sweeter flavour. They are high in protein, low in calories and rich in vitamins C, K and calcium. Antioxidants in Brussels sprouts can also lower glucose levels.
When it comes to Brussels sprouts, people either love or hate the taste of them. If they are a favourite in the kitchen, try stir-fried with bacon, shredded into a salad, roasted with garlic or simply served stemmed.
