Brussels Sprouts

It's no surprise that Brussels sprouts were first cultivated near Brussels, Belgium, around the fourteenth century. These small members of the brassica family are related to wild cabbages and became popular with English and American gardeners in the early 1800s. Since Brussels sprouts have no fat and a load of vitamin C, they're the perfect food when you're watching your weight.
