The Hottest New Vegetable You Should Be Eating

Coming soon to a grocer near you: Kalettes, a yummy combo of kale and brussels sprouts, are the latest healthy vegetable hybrid to hit the produce aisle. Also known as flower sprouts, brussels kale, lollipop kale, or kale sprouts, they feature a sweet and nutty taste—plus some superstar nutrition to back up their pretty appearance, says Nicole Silber, a New York City–based nutritionist at Middleberg Nutrition. Kalettes are packed with vitamins K, B6, C, and folate and contain 4 grams of protein with only 45 calories in a 1½-cup serving. They’re also easy and quick to prepare since you can cook them whole. Make this Garlic Ginger Kalettes recipe, courtesy of Silber: Heat sesame oil on medium heat, add chopped garlic, and sauté for 1–2 minutes. Throw in Kalettes with grated fresh ginger and a pinch of salt and pepper, sauté for 5–6 minutes, then serve.
