Sauteed Baby Purple Brussels Sprouts from Frieda's #healthynewyear

Eating the rainbow is made easier with the selection of colorful produce from Frieda's!  Baby purple Brussels sprouts add a pop of color to your plate, and are a healthy addition to any meal.

There is something so amazing when you are playing with good-for-you vegetables.  I love to start out simply when trying something new and then adjust seasonings and cooking methods after the initial "getting to know you" period.

These super cute baby purple Brussels sprouts are very similar in taste to the traditional green Brussels sprouts you'll find when doing your food shopping.  They can be used in many ways, but I opted to cut them into small bits and sauté them to really show off their amazing color.


Besides adding some fabulous color to your dinner, these sprouts are a great source of fiber and the purple color ensures that you'll be getting added antioxidants with each bite.

I tossed them with a drizzle of olive oil and some Kosher salt.  Then, sautéed until they were softened.  I love veggie side dishes that are simple and open themselves up to a wide variety of seasoning options.

Next time, I'd add some garlic powder and maybe a sprinkle of chipotle powder for a little kick.  They would be fabulous roasted with a drizzle of a really good balsamic vinegar...  there are so many possibilities!  I think tossing a combination of traditional green Brussels sprouts with these pretty purple baby Brussels sprouts would be an ideal way to amp up the nutrition on your dinner table.

My local grocery store carries some of Frieda's produce, which was a nice surprise!  You can find out of your local store carries some of these colorful Brussels sprouts by checking HERE.


Note:  Frieda's Produce provided me with fresh produce to try, but as always, all opinions are my own.
