I tried this fusion adaptation of the classic Indonesian dish. I ended up making about 2/3 the dish, and making far less uncooked sprouts. I also used a yellow onion and cooked the rice using my own method. I also cooked it for less time, according to my own observations, and without cooling down both components. I thought it was a pretty nice way to have Brussels sprouts.

I have a sweet tooth. I decided to use it for good, rather than evil, when it came to using up some leftover mushrooms and Brussels sprouts. This dish is delicious! I didn’t include the cashews and made a much smaller portion.
Did I mention how delicious the creamy garlic sauce was with the cabbage? Even though I halved the cabbage, I still made the full recipe for the garlic sauce because I knew I would love it. I made it using cashew cream.
I used some of the leftover creamy garlic sauce as a dipping sauce for carrots, sweet peppers and crackers. The rest I used to season this pasta, which I cooked with carrots. Some stir-fried mushrooms and Brussels sprouts completed the dish.
I found that my sprouts needed far less time than the recipe called for, so keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.
I used this recipe but opted to grind the cashew nuts before adding them to make a creamier sauce.
I used this recipe for the concept, but boiled the sprouts for 5.5 minutes instead of microwaving them. I substituted the dried cranberries for dried cherries. I made the dukkah using almonds and pinenuts along with sesame seeds, coriander, and cumin.
I did not really care for the dish, but fortunately the person I was making it for did. I think I have to conclude that I simply do not like sprouts boiled, only stir-fried or roasted, and I do not like them with lemon juice. The person who was tasting them likes the classic recipes for sprouts and this was a good variation along those lines.
I gave the Brussels sprouts with soba noodles another try, this time with the addition of carrot shavings. I also used black sesame seeds instead of white ones. Otherwise I stuck to the modifications described in my previous attempt. It is certainly my first choice for sprouts.
