I have mentioned before that I used to not like the taste of Brussels Sprouts. I have spent many hours creating tasty creations with them and am now a BS-convert!

Did you know these sweet little cabbage-wanna-bes boast 124% of the RDA of Vitamin C. Plus a serving only contains 38 calories and 0.3 grams of fat!

The key, in my opinion, is to make them the a star ingredient in several of my creations because, after all, we all need some extra C!

You can serve this with any type of grain and can also substitute the red/yellow pepper with green.



  • 2 Tbl. olive oil
  • 1/2 large red onion chopped
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 large Yellow Bell Pepper, chopped
  • 16 oz. cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1 tsp. garlic crushed
  • 2 links Toffuti Italian Sausage, sliced
  • 10 oz. brussels sprouts finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbl. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbl. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. low sodium tamari


  1. Heat Oil in large saute pan and cook Red Onion, Red Bell Pepper and Yellow Pepper for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in Mushrooms and Garlic and cook for 6 minutes.
  3. Add Sliced Toffuti Italian Sausage and cook for 4 minutes.
  4. Stir in Brussels Sprouts and continue cooking, stirring often, for 4 minutes.
  5. Add salt, apple cider vinegar and tamari and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  6. Stir in Maple Syrup and cook for 1 minute, or until everything is evenly coated.
  7. Serve over grain of choice (gluten-free or wheat) along with fresh greens. I used Arugula (Rocket for my British friends) and Farro, which is not gluten-free.
