Nutrition:
Brussels sprouts are a good source of Thiamin, Riboflavin, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Folate, Potassium and Manganese.

Taste:
Brussels sprouts are compact rounded leaves tightly bound into individual spherical-shaped heads ranging in diameter of one to two inches when mature. They offer the flavors of the earth and the bitter sweetness of cabbage. Younger brussel sprouts carry a sweeter more palatable flavor.

Uses:
Classic cooking methods for Brussels sprouts include roasting, braising or pan frying them in butter with savory accoutrements such as garlic, shallots, thyme, rosemary and sage. Brussels sprouts take on the accompanying flavors which gives them more depth and appeal while also bringing sweetness to the Brussels sprouts.

Substitutions:
Substitutions can be made with cabbage, bok choy and other members of the brassica family but it's hard to recreate the brussels sprouts texture and flavor combination.

Storage:
To store, wrap in plastic; keep in crisper drawer of your refrigerator. Do not wash until ready to use. Brussels sprouts may also be kept on the stem and stored in a dry, cool place such as a pantry or cool store during winter months.
