Roasted Brassica

Our roasted brassica recipe brings together four of our favorite brassicas: broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and radishes. The brassicas are plants that are classified under the Brassicaceae (or mustard) family. They are also known as cruciferous vegetables and many of the vegetables frequently consumed in the United States are brassicas (cruciferous). 

Our Roasted Brassica recipe combines a variety of cruciferous veggies with bacon, garlic, and onions for a winning combination!
