BRUSSELS SPROUTS GRATIN (Gluten Free / 3 points) 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Brussels Sprouts Gratin are the perfect Holiday side dish! The brussels sprouts are roasted until crisp, then topped with a light cheese sauce made with Gruyere and Parmesan, and baked until brown and bubbling. If you are as obsessed with brussels sprouts as I am, you’ll love these.
This recipe can be made the night before and heated on the day.
Brussels sprouts are available year round; however, they are at their best from autumn through early spring when they are at the peak of their growing season.
Plant phytonutrients found in Brussels sprouts enhance the activity of the body's natural defense systems to protect against disease, including cancer. Brussels sprouts are rich in many valuable nutrients. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. They are a very good source of numerous nutrients including folate, manganese, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, choline, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, phosphorus and omega-3 fatty acids.


Ingredients:
16 oz brussels sprouts, trimmed of outer leaves and sliced in half
1/4 tsp kosher salt
black pepper, to taste
olive oil spray
1/2 tbsp butter
1/3 cup chopped shallots
2 tsp all purpose flour (or gluten free flour for GF)
3/4 cup fat free milk
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp fresh thyme
1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
2 oz grated Gruyere cheese, divided


Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray an 8?x12? gratin dish or casserole with olive oil. Add the brussels sprouts and season with salt and pepper. Spray more olive oil over the brussels and place in the lower third of the oven. Bake 15 minutes, toss and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat a medium nonstick pan over medium heat. Add butter and let it melt, add the shallots and cook until softened, about 4 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour (or Gluten Free Flour) over the shallots to make a roux, whisking for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the milk and stir with a wooden spoon until the roux is incorporated into the milk.

Cook over medium-low heat for about 4 minutes, stirring, until the sauce thickens. Add fresh thyme, parmesan and half of the grated Gruyere cheese into the white sauce and stir until the cheese is melted and incorporated into the sauce.

Pour over the brussels sprouts, and top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 15 minutes until top is lightly browned and bubbly.

Wellness Tip
Fat Content Can Be Misleading
When you see a product in the grocery store labeled 98% fat free, don't be fooled. According to the Food & Drug Administration, that percentage refers to the percentage of fat by weight, not by calories. For example, a slice of 89% fat free deli meat means that only 11% of the weight of the product is fat. Although this sounds low, over 50% of the calories may come from fat -- making it a high-fat choice as far as your body is concerned! When selecting low fat foods, ignore the advertising hype; look for grams of fat or the percent Daily Value for fat on the nutrition label.

Recipe
Virgin Margarita with Rock Salt Crystals Sole
Category: Drinks
Description: A great way to replenish our body of necessary salt is to make a fabulous crystal salt solution known as Sole. This recipes uses 2 tablespoons of Sole. There is an unlimited potential of Energy released when water and crystal salt combine in this process. By soaking the crystals in filtered water, the negative poles of the water molecules surround the positive ions in the salt and the negative ions in the salt are surrounded by the positive polarized particles of the water molecules. This changes the geometric structure of the water and the salt, and creates something entirely new.
