Brussel Sprouts

Originating from you guessed it… Brussels, the capital of Belgium. They look like mini cabbages but despite their small structure, they are packed with flavour and high in vitamin C and K. Researchers say that Brussel Sprouts are particularly beneficial for the prevention of bladder, breast, colon, lung, prostate and ovarian cancer.

Although it can take as long as 5 months to reach maturity, it is certainly well worth the wait. With the sprouts forming at the base of each shoot, they make harvesting practical and fun.

  • Sow the seeds in a nutrient rich soil. These plants get large so plant 30cm apart from each other.
  • Place in a well sunlit area. The more sunshine the better.
  • Water well throughout the grow.
  • Harvest between 18 and 20 weeks. Pick the sprouts from the bottom of the plant as new ones develop on the top as the plant grows.

*Rootbox hint – add the tip of a teaspoon to 2L of water and spray on the soil to encourage solid stems growth and better developed sprouts.

 

*Rootbox culinary tip – Honey Glazed Brussel Sprouts.

These smell so good that it’s really hard to say no to a bite. Plus with the sweet honey contrasting the salty parmesan, it really make Brussel sprouts taste amazing!

Ingredients:

2 cups Brussel sprouts.

4 Tbs honey.

2 Tbs Olive oil.

1 clove garlic. Crushed

2 Tbs grated parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste.

Instructions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. EXCEPT the parmesan cheese.
  2. Place on a baking sheet in a baking tray.
  3. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over
  4. Bake at 220°C in a preheated oven for 15-20min or until golden brown.

*Rootbox hint – cut the ends off that connect to the stem then cut them in half again. This is just more practical for your child. Proportionally thinking, imagine stuffing a whole plum in your mouth and enjoying it.
