Amazing superfoods are either hitting their peak in the garden or can easily be found in your local farmers market or grocery store, like Brussels sprouts. They’re the perfect excuse to get cooking on cool nights!

Made the correct way, these veggies taste divine. They have a mild, somewhat bitter taste, so combine them with tangy or savory sauces, like balsamic vinegar. Health benefits include:

• 1/2 cup contains more than your DRI of vitamin K
• Very good source of folate
• Good source of iron

Harvest season: September–March
