Mixed Sautéed Vegetables
The vegetable plate makes the hearts of side dish fans beat faster! Red cabbage and broccoli score points with plenty of vitamin C, while Brussels sprouts come up with a combination of thiamine and folic acid. This is an ideal vegetable for people with a lack of concentration and severely stressed nerves. And the noble chestnuts contain plenty of fiber and starch, make you feel full and taste wonderfully nutty.
If children eat with you or you would like to avoid alcohol, you can alternatively pour vegetable stock and 3 tbsp. red wine vinegar on the red cabbage. If chestnuts are not available you can substitute with prunes.
