It’s definitely hard trying to get everyone to eat their vegetables, not only kids. Sometimes even adults can be reluctant to get their recommended daily intake of vegetables especially if those vegetables are infamous for being an acquired taste, like the Brussels sprout.

Add a spicy element to it and you’ve got a perfect combination of sweet, salty, and spicy that can transform anyone’s previous distaste of this superfood.
