Ever notice Brussel sprouts look like mini-brains? Walnuts too! Nature's telling us something. Boost your brainpower with Roasted Brussel Sprouts Salad Recipe!
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. This easy-to-make recipe is triple-packed with brain foods. Here’re some stand-out reasons why this dish is mouth-wateringly good! 😍
• Brussel sprouts are high in vitamins A and C, which reduce inflammation and oxidation. They also contain sulforaphane which can help protect the brain against neurodegenerative diseases.
• Walnuts are a brain health powerhouse that can help preserve memory, thought processing and even boost your mood! They are packed with nutrients and have one of the highest amounts of omega-3 fats (the good-for-you-fats) of any nut.
• Not sure which leafy greens to go with? We recommend arugula, kale, spinach, or romaine as these greens are rich in potassium, numerous B vitamins, and vitamins A, C, and K.
Combine ¼ cup of the oil, the maple syrup, soy sauce, and garlic in a blender. Blend until smooth; set aside.
Preheat your oven to 375ºF. Toss the Brussels sprouts on a rimmed baking sheet with the remaining tablespoon of oil and the salt. Spread them out so they are all in a single layer. Roast for 20 minutes, or until the edges are crispy and brown. Set aside to cool.
Place the greens in a salad bowl and toss with the cooled Brussels sprouts and 2 tablespoons of the dressing. Toss to combine, then top with the diced apple, walnuts, and currants. Drizzle another 2 tablespoons of dressing and toss well. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and serve immediately.
