I love creative vegetable recipes. The kind that is unexpected and makes you dream of a food that was never worthy of your precious cravings before! Creativity in the kitchen is key. The only thing that can be better is if the recipe only takes 15 minutes to get on the table. From raw to done in no time at all, that is what this fresh idea Brussels Sprouts Kabobs recipe is!
The beauty of the Barbie Cabbage (Brussels Sprouts)
I use to love when my mom took out the brussels sprouts. I always wanted a fresh one for my Barbies dinner table! I have always called them Barbie Cabbage for as long as I can remember. They are just so darn cute. What you don’t know is there is NO way I was going to eat one. Yuck! It was not until after a cancer diagnosis that I started to find ways to enjoy them.
I commonly find that people don’t like a particular vegetable because of how it was prepared when they tried it the first time. Brussels sprouts can get slimy in a hurry when over cooked. No one really loves a slimy food of any kind. So if you have never liked Brussels sprouts before I would love to encourage you to try this recipe.
You should eat Brussels Sprouts! They are full of things your body loves and cancer hates. A powerful anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular support, detoxification, cancer buster, and digestive super powers!
