I like to call them “baby cabbages” lol… but here is why they are awesome!

 

  • Very high in vitamin C and K, High amount of protein and fiber with very little fat, calories, and sodium.
  • Packed with phytonutrients that help fight off cancers.
  • Helps with digestion
  • Have an anti-inflammatory effect
  • Cholesterol lowering and cardiovascular support
  •  Help with detoxification

 

They are in season during the fall and winter months but you can ideal get them year around. If not frozen, you can store in fringe for around 2 weeks in just a air sealed plastic bag.

I like them steamed and in a little Earth Balance  (dairy free butter) for taste. Also baking in a little salt and pepper is good too.

Enjoy!
