I despised Brussels sprouts until I was probably about 30. I didn’t think to give them a chance before then. But now that I have, my Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze are a weekly thing!

I love tossing them in the air fryer to get them crispy as well as eating them in a Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad.

Beyond eating the cute little veggies, its also super important to determine what to eat with your brussel sprouts. I will share some of my favorites!

Why We Love Brussels Sprouts:

  • They are packed with all the good stuff. High in fiber, rich in antioxidants, lots of vitamins–brussels sprouts are a veggie power house for sure. Adding them to a meal is a guarantee for some good nutrition!
  • There are lots of ways to cook them. While roasting and air frying them seem to be the most popular these days, these veggies can be sautéed, steamed and more. You can even grill them. This means, it’s hard to get bored of them too easily.
  • They can help prevent disease. Studies have shown that eating brussels sprouts can help prevent cancer, manage diabetes, protect your bones–lots of great things to help keep you at your best.
  • Brussel sprouts taste amazing! Ok, maybe not to you, but sometimes it’s just a matter of finding the right way of preparing them. It wasn’t until I tried them in a salad at a local restaurant served shaved that I actually started loving them. Give it a chance!

What To Serve With Brussels Sprouts:

If you are making brussels sprouts as a separate side dish for your meal, you want to pair it with just the right dish. Lots of meats do very well with them and I find the options to be unlimited.

Fish, pork, beef, chicken–there really isn’t a lot you can go wrong with. A piece of meat that has been seasoned and cooked to perfection will maximize the experience of the little cabbages.

The following are some great options to eat with your brussel sprouts:
