Recipe: Brussels Sprout, Kale & Green Bean Stir-fry

The winter holidays call for comfort and a lot of excessive eating and feasting! Fear not, it is easy to enliven your table with healthy seasonal dishes that will add color and a festive note to your holidays. Brussels sprouts are the star of the show this winter.

We like to keep some of that flavor and crunch and stir-fry them with green beans and red kale. This dish is versatile, can be enjoyed with some rice or as a side dish to your mains.
