Brussels sprouts - cabbage's delicious little cousin! This delightful and nutrition-rich vegetable may look like a little cabbage (it's from the same botanical family), but its flavor is milder and its texture denser. Brussels sprouts happen to pack a potent nutritional punch. As a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, Brussels sprouts contain significant amounts of antioxidants, vitamin C and beta-carotene (vitamin A), and nitrogen compounds, which may reduce the risk of certain cancers. One of the few vegetables to originate in northern Europe, Brussels sprouts got their name from being cultivated near the Belgian capital in the late 16th Century. After World War I, cultivation grew throughout Europe. They're still hugely popular in Great Britain, where some consider it the national vegetable. Only about 10 calories each, Brussels sprouts are low in fat and sodium, high in dietary fiber and are cholesterol-free. They also contain high levels of naturally occurring vitamin C and specific health-promoting compounds called glucosinolates with antioxidant properties, and proven health benefits in the area of cancer prevention. Brussels sprouts have three times the level of vitamin C of an orange. Unlike most vegetables, Brussels sprouts are rather high in protein, accounting for more than a quarter of their calories. Four-to-six sprouts contain the adult daily requirements for vitamin C. They're also an excellent source of vitamin D and folic acid during pregnancy.
