Brussel sprouts made good

Shara Burger | From The Kitchen

So, we all know that brussel sprouts are not one of the world’s most favourite vegetables, right up there with okra. However, let’s not underestimate the incredible health benefits of this tiny cabbage, as well as the many ways to prepare it. This is possibly why it’s one of the trendiest veggies out there right now.

Trust Chef Ryan to be en vogue, even from the heart of the Timbavati, and serve a totally delicious, nutritious brussel sprout salad. It’s quite strange that these small green vegetables are so offensive, it can only be the way they have been prepared in the past, because their health benefits are amazing.

They are high in fiber, antioxidants, vitamin C and K, help reduce sugar levels and inflammation…the list goes on and on. So, the trick is to find more delicious ways of serving this super vegetable, and a great start is this delicious salad. Really, it will convert the most avid brussel sprout hater and from there things can only get better!
