This easy stovetop dish creates a delicious balance between the Brussels sprouts natural nuttiness and mild cabbage flavor with the crisp tart taste of apples. Mmm…
Not too mention this low-calorie and fat free dish is packed full of 20 antioxidant rich essential vitamins and minerals that help support a healthier you! (It’s high in Vitamin A, C, E, & most of the complex B vitamins iron, calcium, magnesium, etc)
