I love Brussels Sprouts! This dish combines them with cream, cheese and chicken for a really comforting and delicious meal!
Fall and winter are the perfect time to enjoy casseroles! They are so easy to make and so good for your palate and your soul 🙂 However, most of recipes out there are full of unhealthy fats and loaded with refined carbs. This dish will give you a healthy option to keep you warm and happy in the cold seasons.
Brussels sprouts are a good source of fiber, manganese, potassium, choline, B vitamins, vitamin K and C. They also contain phytonutrients that have been linked to impressive health benefits including cancer prevention. Furthermore, this amazing cruciferous supports our detox system and provides antioxidant agents.
My whole family enjoyed this dish and hope you family will as well 🙂
