There’s a new vegetable on the block and if you spot it on your travels, I highly recommend that you try it.
Flower Sprouts® are a gorgeous cross between kale and Brussels sprouts. They look like tiny little cabbages with streaks of purple on frilly green leaves.
This vegetable was developed with the hopes of creating a subtly flavored Brussels sprout that looked pretty. Mission accomplished!
Flower Sprouts® are very easy to cook. After rinsing them in cold water, try blanching, steaming, stir frying or boiling and serving alongside meat or fish. They also make a delicious salad.
Flower Sprouts® are not only absolutely beautiful on a dinner plate, they contain all kinds of nutrition.
A 100 gram serving of Flower Sprouts® has twice as much Vitamin C and Vitamin B6 as Brussels sprouts. These pretty vegetables are also an excellent source of Vitamin E.
Because Flower Sprouts® are a combination of kale and Brussels sprouts, they also contain the multitude of health benefits that cruciferous vegetables have to offer.
We are encouraged to eat several handfuls of cruciferous vegetables each day, and because Flower Sprouts® are so beautiful, they are an easy sell for even the pickiest little eaters.
If you do find them and try them for dinner, please come back here and let me know what you thought!
