An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: Brussel Sprout Hash


Brussel Sprouts.  Those notorious green ‘spheres of gross’ that your parents would bribe you to eat…

Turns out,  they’re actually pretty tasty when done up right!

This is my husband’s easy-peasy, extra-tasty dish and it goes a lil’ sumthin’ like this:

15-20 brussel sprouts, halved

1/2 white onion, chopped

1/2 head of red cabbage, chopped

1 garlic clove, chopped

2 Tbsp of olive oil

dash of salt and pepper

fresh grated Parmesan, optional

Serves 8-10 depending on how many brussel sprouts you bribe your kids to eat (kidding, never bribe when it’s your kids’ health! Only punish. Kidding again. Do what you like, this isn’t a parenting blog…but make your kids eat greens from the first year of life on)


In a large pan, sauté olive oil, onion and garlic on med/high x 5 mins

Then add Brussel Sprouts x 5-7 min cover but flip sprouts/stir occasionally

add cabbage and sauté x 2 minutes

salt and pepper to taste

garnish with parmesan, if so desired (cheese makes everything taste better, but some of us should avoid dairy)

    Wow! The red cabbage makes Brussels sprouts pop with color! Love it! My kids actually all like Brussels! I’m in luck!

      You are lucky! Our kids are getting much better at trying (and subsequently liking) new things. I didn’t eat a brussel sprouts until my 30s!
