Your guide to great produce for the season – and preparation tips to please kids

(page 3 of 9)

Brussels Sprouts

Good Body Benefits: Move over oranges. Brussels sprouts are also a great source of vitamin C. These small vegetables that look like mini cabbages are also packed with vitamin K and other nutrients like fiber, which helps keep your digestive system in check.

How to Prepare: "If you serve them whole, you're probably going to get a grumpy face from your kids," says Shawn Loving, department chair for culinary arts at Schoolcraft College in Livonia. His suggestion is to use the sprouts in recipes where you might use cabbage. You can cut them up into thin strips to make coleslaw, use them in stir-fry recipes or even mix into chicken noodle soup (whether it's made from scratch or from a can).
