Brussels sprouts are far from that vegetable you hated as a kid (and any kind of brussels sprouts recipe, in general). They are loaded with vitamin C and vitamin K. One cup of Brussels sprouts provides 75 milligrams of vitamin C which is almost all of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA). Brussels sprouts also contain vitamin A, potassium, and folate. They are considered a dark green, leafy vegetable.

Brussels sprouts are in season from September to mid-February. You can most definitely find them at your favorite farmers’ market and grocery store. You may find them loose or even on the stalk. Look for sprouts that have tight heads and are about 1 inch in diameter.
