<article> <section> <p align="justify">Brussels sprouts are an amazing vegetable, because they’re delicious, packed with nutrients and easy to cook with! While they’re delicious with just some basic seasonings, you can make an out-of-this-world side dish with a few additions.</p> <header>Eat More Brussels Sprouts!</header> <p align="justify">Like other nutrient-packed vegetables in the cruciferous family like broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower, brussels sprouts are full of antioxidants that can help fight diseases. </p> <p align="justify">One cup of Brussels sprouts pack enough vitamin C and K to meet your daily requirement! These vitamins can help boost your immune system and keep your bones healthy. They also have a lot of protein as well as potassium, manganese and B vitamins.</p> <header>The Skinny on Sun-Dried Tomatoes</header> <p align="justify">While tomatoes are technically a fruit, we approve them for keto! They do contain a number of carbs so you want to take this into consideration of your overall daily total. You also want to make sure there is not added sugar in whatever sun-dried tomatoes you buy!</p> <p align="justify">They make a great topper for these brussels sprouts or salads, and they have some awesome benefits. They have iron, vitamins A, C and K and like fresh tomatoes, they are linked to reduced risk of heart disease. Lycopene is a key component that gives tomatoes their red color and it is an antioxidant that helps even further with heart health and help the skin, bones and blood pressure.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <header itemprop="name">Sun-Dried Tomato and Parmesan Brussels Sprouts</header> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT5M">Prep Time: 5 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT10M">Cooking Time: 10 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 6</span> </div> <div class="sub-head">Ingredients:</div> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tablespoon minced garlic</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tablespoon coconut oil</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 ½ cups shredded parmesan</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tablespoon chopped sun-dried tomatoes</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">Salt and pepper to taste</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <div class="sub-head">Instructions:</div> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li><p align="justify">In a large lidded skillet, submerge Brussels sprouts so they’re just covered.
