This time of year showcases deep green, in-season veggies, and I couldn't resist buying this 2 foot long stalk of fresh brussel sprouts for $2.00. Yes, only $2.00! There are varying sizes of cabbage-like heads on the stalk that snap off easily when you're ready to cook them.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
3 large handfuls of fresh brussel sprouts
(it should be about a pound or so)
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove any yellow outer leaves from heads, then cut off the bottom portion. Cut the brussel sprouts in half, and place them in a deep bowl.
Food For Thought:
Brussel sprouts contain a chemical called sinigrin, which suppresses the development of precancerous cells.
