Brussel sprouts are amazing. Not only are they absolutely delicious and easy to make, but their health benefits are endless. Like most leafy greens, sprouts are high in Vitamin K. Vitamin K plays an essential role the body’s blood clotting process. Brussel spouts, like their cousin broccoli, are high in antioxidants. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals. Free radicals destroy the body’s cells and can potentially cause cancer. A diet high in antioxidant-rich foods help to combat these processes and guard the body from certain diseases and cancers. Adding Papa Vince olive oil, also high in antioxidants, and you have a meal that is not only tasty, but potentially combating disease.
Traditionally a middle Eastern food & a staple in the Mediterranean diet, hummus has become an established favorite in any health conscious kitchen.

All you need is a good quality blender or food processor & your Papa Vince Olive Oil & Lemon Olive Oil and you’re all set.
We recently served this as an appetizer at our Christmas Open House. We prepared a double portion and there was none left at the end of the evening.
This is a healthy & different appetizer idea that you can easily prepare and wow your guests at holiday parties!
