This Veggie Frittata is so filling and who knew Brussels Sprouts and eggs could taste so good I truly think they are the star of this frittata. I am not a sweet breakfast kind of girl but I do love eggs and I am always loading them up with veggies from the recent produce haul. This week I added lots of brussels sprouts, kale, and mushrooms.
Brussels Sprouts are so good for you. They have some special cholesterol-lowering benefits, especially when steamed. The fiber-related components are great for your digestive tract and result in lowering your cholesterol levels. Raw Brussels sprouts are helpful with cholesterol-lowering, but not as much as steamed Brussels sprouts. I actually really love Brussels Sprouts since I was a kid so, I had to try it. This recipe is really easy, really tasty and you look like a cooking rock star. I think some red peppers would make it tastier and going to try that next time.
Just a tip: It is very important not to overcook Brussels sprouts. Not only do they lose their nutritional value and taste but they will begin to emit the unpleasant sulfur smell associated with overcooked cruciferous vegetables. To help Brussels sprouts cook more quickly and evenly cut each sprout into quarters or slice them. The recipe is really easy and adds a new dish for breakfast even lunch if you like.
