brussels sprouts against cancer


I originally found this recipe in a booklet from “Kom op tegen kanker“, a flemish initiative to raise awareness funds against cancer. It is a typical flemish autumn dish, healthy and easy to make.  My original version in dutch can be found here.

Ingredients (4 persons):

– 1 kg brussels sprouts

– 600gr potatoes

– 500gr minced poultry meat

– 0,5l vegetable of chicken broth

– one can of chopped tomatoes (400gr)

– salt, pepper and paprika to taste

– a little bit of nutmeg

– some fresh vegetables of the season (onion, garlic, parsley, celery, chives)


– clean the sprouts.

– Peal the potatoes and cut them into cubes.

– prepare the additional fresh vegetables.

– Boil the broth and cook the potatoes and the sprouts for 15 minutes in it.

– Meanwhile prepare meatballs from the minced meat, try to make them the same size as the brussels sprouts.

– Add the tomatoes, the vegetables and the meatballs.

– Let it simmer for another 15 minutes.

– Add nutmeg, salt, pepper and paprika powder and serve immediately.
