Sun Dried Tomato and Parmesan Brussels Sprouts

Now don’t be eyeballing the steak and hoping for a big juicy steak recipe, or you’ll be sorely disappointed. This post is all about the side dish.

I’ll be 50 years old in May, and I have to say it’s not been until the last year, that I’ve come to appreciate these delicious cruciferous vegetables. While I admit the smell as they are cooking could use some improvement, the temporary assault on my senses is worth it.

If you aren’t a fan, give them a try with this sweet sun dried tomato vinaigrette. I bet I’ll have a new brussels sprouts convert by the time you’re done eating.

Happy cooking!

What’s good for me in this dish?

Brussels sprouts top the charts in vitamins K and C. They also contain folate, vitamin A, manganese, and lots of fiber. They provide cancer protection in the form of sulfur containing phytonutrients called “sulforaphane.” They lower your risk of bladder, prostate, colorectal and lung cancer. They are also good for detoxification and cleansing.

    ok…ok… I’ll try them ONE more time. :-) I’ve only had brussle sprouts twice and d-i-d not like them. Thanks for this recipe.

      Ha! I think it’s because whenever I had them they were steamed and the smell was enough to turn me off. Add some sauce, and now we’re talking.
