I love leafy greens – my staples are spinach, broccoli, kale and (my absolute fave) brussel sprouts! Greens are fabulous because they have a ton of nutrients including vitamins A, C and K – in fact kale has over 1000% of your RDA for vitamin K in just 1 cup – wow! Call me strange but I also love the taste (I’m a rabbit at heart) – the vague bitterness and earthy taste – greens make a fabulous base to any meal. Yes, even breakfast when spinach (or even kale) can be used to make a smoothie like this one.
Today I’m going to be sharing my plantPOWER recipe for roasted Garlic brussel sprouts (extra G in there!), these are delicious and the perfect compliment to some quinoa and tomato lentil sauce!! Also perfect for the Green in a tone it up M5 (us TIU gals love our sprouts!)
Garlic Brussel Sprouts
- 1 cup brussel sprouts
- 1tsp – 1tbsp olive oil (depending on how much fat you want – I recommend the higher end)
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 1 tsp maple syrup (gives a delicious flavour)
Preheat oven to 180 C. Combine ingredients in bowl. Bake for 30-35 mins. Enjoy.
This is so simple it shouldn’t even be called a recipe!
