Ginger Tamarind Brussels Sprouts

Posted on

I used this recipe, except I substituted agave syrup for the honey to make it vegan, and I poured the sauce directly on the sprouts while they were still cooking, so that it was fully absorbed.

This was not a bad way to prepare sprouts. I think it would be nice tossed with buckwheat noodles and a bit of fried tofu, as a main dish.

Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes

Posted on

I kind of started with this recipe, but I wasn’t in the mood for sweet potatoes so I used ordinary potatoes. I also didn’t have any shallots, so I substituted red onion. So in the end, it was probably a completely different dish.

This was part of my ongoing attempt to find ways to prepare Brussels sprouts, given my lack of fondness for the vegetable. Sadly, while I found the potato part fine, this was not the recipe to overcome my opinion of Brussels sprouts.

Brussels Sprout Nasi Goreng

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.

Caramelized Maple Brussels Sprouts and Mushrooms

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.

Vegetable Pasta with Creamy Garlic Sauce

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.
