While it’s customary to have a vegetable side during the holiday’s , no one ever said it had to taste like health food! The holidays are all about decadence and enjoying life to its fullest, which in my book, means incorporating lots of heavy cream and cheese. When paired with a nice, crisp Sauvignon Blanc, like A Smile and a Wink from Club W, the green veggies are highlighted to at least make you feel like you aren’t cheating-too much. Try this heavenly spin on a powerhouse veggie for a mind-blowing side that your guests will love!
