Oven Roasted Squash and Sprouts

claire

Did you know that Brussels Sprouts are named after the capital of Belgium? They’re an excellent source of Vitamin C, A, E, K and omega-3 fatty acid. They help to neutralize potentially toxic substances because of sulfur compounds such as glu-cosinolates and isothiocyanates found in the sprouts. They also create a glowing complexion. Brussels sprouts peak during the winter and require an additional minute to cook during the summer.
