Brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables are packed with phytochemicals that may help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.

Ingredients

Makes 6 Servings


  • Brussels sprouts, washed, ends trimmed (2 pounds)
  • Gala apple, diced (2/3 cup)
  • walnuts, toasted (1/4 cup)
  • whole-grain mustard (1 tsp.)
  • lemon juice, freshly squeezed (2 tbsp.)
  • unsweetened applesauce (2 tbsp.)
  • maple syrup (2 tsp.)
  • fresh thyme, chopped (1 tsp.)
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper. Cut Brussels sprouts in half and season with salt and pepper. Place cut-side down on the parchment sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the Brussels sprouts are tender and golden brown.



  2. While the Brussels sprouts are cooking, combine the mustard, lemon juice, applesauce, maple syrup, and thyme in a small bowl to make the dressing. Whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.



  3. Remove the Brussels sprouts from the oven and let cool slightly. In a large bowl, combine the Brussels sprouts, walnuts, and diced apples and toss them with the dressing. Serve warm.
