This delightful and nutrition-rich vegetable may look like cabbage, but has a denser texture and milder flavor. One of the few vegetables to originate in northern Europe, Brussels sprouts got their name from being cultivated near the Belgian capital in the late 16th century. After World War I, cultivation grew throughout Europe. They’re still hugely popular in Great Britain, where some consider it the national vegetable.
