January 31 is National Brussel Sprouts Day! It’s time to celebrate this delicious and nutritious naturally gluten-free vegetable that is often overlooked! Brussel sprouts are a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber and can be prepared in various ways to make a delicious meal. Today, let’s take a look at some delicious recipes you can make with Brussel Sprouts, and how to make the most of this special holiday!

One of the best ways to enjoy Brussel sprouts is to roast them in the oven. Toss them with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast them at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Then, you can top them with your favorite flavors, such as garlic, dairy-free parmesan cheese, or lemon zest. Not only is this a delicious and easy way to prepare Brussel Sprouts, but it also helps to bring out their natural sweetness.

If you’re looking for a more gluten-free creative way to prepare your Brussel Sprouts, try making them into a delicious salad. Start by cutting the Brussel Sprouts into thin slices, then combine them with your favorite vegetables, such as carrots and celery. Top the salad with some dried fruits and a light vinaigrette dressing. The combination of flavors will be sure to tantalize your taste buds!

Finally, don’t forget the classic Brussel Sprouts side dish – sautéed Brussel sprouts. Start by heating a pan over medium heat and adding a tablespoon of olive oil. Add the Brussel Sprouts and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 10 minutes, occasionally stirring, until the Brussel Sprouts are golden brown and cooked. Add some garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice for extra flavor, and you’ve got a tasty side dish that’s sure to be a hit!
