This Brussel Sprout Stuffing is a delightful side dish that is loaded with chorizo sausage, cranberries and buttery brussel sprouts. It’s a winning recipe that the whole family will enjoy!
I’m extremely excited and humbled to be partnering with Challenge Butter again this month. As you know, I’m one of their brand ambassadors, so not only do I get to create delicious, dairy-infused recipes such as this one, but I also get to be a part of a larger campaign to help build awareness of the child malnutrition crisis and to help provide aid to hundreds of children in need.
This has been on my mind a lot lately. I keep seeing commercials about children in less developed countries, who need help, and I always want to do more for them. I want to adopt them all and feed them. That might not be too practical, I’d have to run it by my husband first…
This year Challenge Butter has once again joined forces with UNICEF to help not only build awareness, but to also provide nutritious meals to malnourished children. Malnutrition is not merely a result of too little food, but of a combination of factors: insufficient protein, energy and micronutrients, frequent infections or disease, poor care and feeding practices, etc. Undernutrition puts children at greater risk of dying from common infections, increases the frequency and severity of such infections, and contributes to delayed recovery.
Did you know that poor nutrition in the first 1,000 days of a child’s life can also lead to stunted growth? This does irreversible damage to a child’s body and brain, and is associated with impaired cognitive ability and reduced school and work performance. Proper nutrition is mega important for these youngsters.
I know it can feel daunting when you think about all the children in the world that need help.
“What can I do to help?”
Right now through December 31, 2014 Challenge will donate a meal for a child in need to the UNICEF foundation for each recipe pinned from its “Pin a Recipe, Feed a Child” Pinterest board. Challenge has committed to provide up to 75,000 meals through this campaign.
So basically, the more recipes you pin from their board (including this recipe), the more you can help spread the word and help feed a child in need. #PinaRecipeFeedaChild
Want to do more? You can donate directly to UNICEF right here.
Let me tell you about this glorious stuffing.
I sautéed the brussel sprouts in Challenge Butter along with some diced onions until they were soft and tender, then I combined them with crumbled chorizo sausage and plump cranberries. The combination of herbs and spices with the sautéed brussel sprouts is a true winning dish. My whole family enjoyed this one, even the kids!
