Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Mushrooms -Gluten Free

Brussel sprouts…I know, I know…yuck right? WRONG! Actually, they are pretty good. It just depends on how you prepare them. Often times they are overcooked and have a very nasty, sulfur like smell and taste to them. Please, consider this: Brussels sprouts not only taste good but they contain a potent chemical called sulfoaphane, which is believed to have potent anti-cancer properties (boiling reduces the anti-cancer properties).  Mushrooms, are another of those delectable treats that many turn their noses at. If you have ever roasted a mushroom, you will know how the taste changes from a simple mushroom to this moist, flavorful morsel that disappears  the moment it is cooked.  Both of the ingredients in this dish are high in dietary fiber, which reduces cholesterol and does not cause sugar spikes.

Give these two vegetables a try and you may be pleasantly surprised.
