The little cabbage has it all: fibre that keeps us full and at the same time can bind dietary fats. It is also said to be able to protect us from certain types of cancer (stomach, intestines and lungs).

You can also make the tasty Brussels sprouts casserole vegetarian with a small modification. Replace the bacon with pickled tomatoes cut into strips.
