Brussels sprouts are small, round, green vegetables. They are most often about 1 to 1.5 inches (2.5 to 3 centimeters) wide. Brussels sprouts look like tiny cabbages, but they are milder in flavor. They belong to the brassica family, which includes kale, broccoli, collard greens, cauliflower, kohlrabi, rutabaga, and arugula.

When cooked, Brussels sprouts are tender; they may also be served raw and crunchy when shredded. They are full of nutrients and can be included in many meals.
