This is a twist on the classic “veggies-cooked-in-a-white-sauce”, but I have changed things up a bit using the less-celebrated Brussels sprouts – and (more importantly) I made it grain-free by recreating the delicious white sauce.

The best part of this dish (apart from the heavenly, cheesy topping) is the occasional bite of natural sweetness thanks to the red grapes scattered in-between. I just know you will love this – and so will the kids! Trust me on this one! It’s a healthier take on the classic Minnesota hotdish!

4. Drain them in a colander and allow to steam off completely, then pour them into a suitable sized baking dish. Spread them out evenly and scatter in the red grapes.
