From the author, Honor Fabun: Make this tasty Brussels Sprouts Slaw featuring autumn produce for a nice, change-of-seasons side dish. It’s ready-to-eat in a few minutes, but if you’re able, prepare an hour or two in advance to allow the acid time to tenderize the brussels.

From Plant-Based on a Budget: Here at Plant-Based on a Budget, we love challenges, and for some, finding a recipe that makes brussels sprouts appealing is a real tricky challenge. This Brussels Sprouts Slaw with Lemon Poppy Dressing will make you rethink your relationship with these mini green cabbage-like wonders.

Baby Cabbages

These mighty little brussels sprouts look like they could be baby cabbages — and they are incredible. They’re delicious, versatile, and full of “good for you” factors. Apart from their amazing fiber content, they pack a punch of vitamin K and vitamin C which are key nutrients for bone health, iron absorption, and good immunity.

As if that wasn’t enough, brussels sprouts are also rich in antioxidants and they help regulate blood sugar levels. Amazing, right?

Holiday Side

This Brussels Sprouts Slaw with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing is such a great option for a Thanksgiving or Christmas side dish! It’s easy and quick to prepare, healthy, and adds a fresh element to a feast full of baked and cooked dishes.

It would go really well with a cauliflower mash, some plant-based gravy, and a delicious lentil roast. Have you tried raw brussels sprouts before? If you haven’t, we think they will be a very nice surprise!
