Nutritional values

Especially in the cold season we benefit from vitamin C and bitter substances from cranberries and Brussels sprouts The ascorbic acid is needed for the formation of collagen in the tissues and has an antioxidant effect; the bitter substances stimulate digestion and positively affect blood lipid levels.

If you prefer to enjoy this Brussels sprouts with cranberries recipe as a vegetarian, replace the turkey bacon with finely diced feta. It becomes vegan with tofu cubes.
