Directions for Preparation

Steamed brussel sprouts of the past will never compare to these caramelized little gems. They are a lovely side dish or make it your main meal by tossing in pasta with a lean meat or fish. Eating well and maintaining a healthy body weight reduces your risk of developing cancer. Daffodil Days, hosted by the Canadian Cancer Society in April, promotes supporting cancer research.
