This is basically a mac and cheese with lots of brussels sprouts leaves, so there is less reason to feel guilty about the carbs! Rach kicks it up a notch in the cheese department, however, using mouthwatering Fontina Val’dosta, Parmigiano Reggiano and Gorgonzola Dolce. She tops with brown butter sage breadcrumbs and crispy sage leaves for the grand finale.

This make your own takeout recipe can be healthier for you, because, as Rachael says, you control the salt, fat and quality of ingredients. Rach stir fries lean pork with green beans, cabbage, onions and garlic, and tosses it with a 5 spice soy chutney sauce.

Tip: Rach serves the rice with an ice cream scoop, and puts it on top of the stir fry, so that it won’t get soggy and mushy.

No. 3: Plum Sauce Chicken and Broccoli
