As a kid, you have a distinct taste palate: You only like a few things and you definitely never understood the word “healthy.” But as time went on and you got to explore more flavors, you started to like the stuff that you hated as a kid. If you were one of the lucky few who actually LIKED vegetables as a child, we applaud you. But if you are like the rest of us (#teamsugar), and slowly grew into your kindred relationship with the green stuff, then we have a special treat for you. Brussels sprouts are just one of those types of vegetables that not everyone likes (even the adults). They have a strong flavor, but as with every other vegetable known to man, they’re extremely healthy for you. If you would like to add Brussels sprouts to your diet but don’t know exactly how, then let us help you with three recipes that will save your relationship with this edible green for morning, noon and snack time.


Over Easy Brussels Sprouts

Easily as tasty as it is runny, this breakfast dish will give you all the brain power you need as well as a very, very happy stomach. Can’t beat this two-for-one.



— 2 eggs

— 1/2 bag Brussels sprouts

— 1 teaspoon minced garlic

— 1/2 teaspoon salt

— 1 teaspoon pepper

— 1/2 teaspoon paprika

— 1 tablespoon olive oil

— shredded cheese


Wash your Brussels sprouts and cut them into halves and quarters.


Place the Brussels sprouts into a bowl and mix with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and paprika.


Coat an ovenproof frying pan with a little bit of olive oil, and place the Brussels sprouts in the pan. Roast them in the oven for about ten minutes on 400 degrees Fahrenheit. After ten minutes, take the frying pan out and move the Brussels sprouts around to leave some space for the eggs. Crack two eggs into the middle of the frying pan, salt and pepper the eggs and place back in the oven for another ten minutes.


Take the frying pan out of the oven and sprinkle shredded mixed cheese on top of the Brussels sprouts and eggs.


Put on a plate and enjoy!

Brussels Sprout Salad

This salad may only consist of a few ingredients, but it still packs a wallop. The hardest part about this dish is the shredding of the Brussels sprouts. But after one bite, it will all be worth the hard labor. Trust us.



— 1/2 bag Brussels sprouts

— 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

— 1/2 tablespoon salt

— 1 tablespoon pepper

— half an avocado

— 1/4 cup craisins

— 1 1/2 lemons

— 1 handful shredded parmesan cheese


Take half a bag of Brussels sprouts and thinly slice them with a knife. After all Brussels sprouts have been sliced, pile them back together and chop them up with a knife one more time to get even thinner slices.


On a cutting board, chop up walnuts into smaller bits.


In a bowl, combine lemons, olive oil, salt and pepper, and stir together to make the dressing.


Combine Brussels sprouts, avocados, craisins and dressing in a bowl and mix together until the dressing fully coats all the ingredients.


Place salad in a serving dish and sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese on top.
