Lemon-Dijon Brussels Sprouts and Apples {Recipe}

Brussels sprouts get a bad rap. This cruciferous vegetable is loaded with health benefits (among them fiber, vitamins C and K, and folate), yet it’s often referred to as the dreaded vegetable all kids hate. When I was a kid, I never ate Brussels sprout; I don’t even think they were offered to me. It was probably assumed I wouldn’t…

Shakshuka for Dinner
