Brussels Sprouts Braised in Cream

This post on braising has been long overdue. At this point I’ve cooked sprouts in heavy amounts of dairy multiple times, but for anyone that hasn’t this is a real treat. First off, it’s important to note that although Brussels sprouts are clearly a vegetable, it’s easy to make an unhealthy dish with them. This…

Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts

While I’m still sorting through old photos (and getting new submissions of people eating their own sprouts), I managed to cook up a new recipe this weekend. Why did this recipe take precedence over the stack of recipes I’ve made or sample in the past few weeks? Well, it was really, really good. This recipe…

Shredded Sprouts at LAX

Catching up on a stockpile of Brussels sprouts photos I have saved up. I may not have posted anything new in a few weeks, but I have diligently been tasting and cooking sprouts. Let me organize these photos but stay tuned for everything from sprouts braised in cream to sprouts baked in rice. In the…

Shredded Kale, Pear (Noodle), and Brussels Sprouts Salad

Let’s talk about spiralizers. I saw this recipes and was excited because I’ve only used my spiralizer successfully on zucchini, summer squash, and carrots so far. Even then, it can be tricky if you don’t select exactly the right sized vegetables. Tip: Cutting a vegetable to fit doesn’t give you the best results. I was…

Coles de Bruselas

This past weekend, my family and I celebrated my brother’s college graduation with tapas. Now, most of the items we ordered were the standard fare: paella, patatas bravas, Spanish tortilla (omelets), etc. However, I spied Brussels sprouts on the menu and had to order some for the table. The Coles de Bruselas were sauteed Brussels…

Warm Quinoa Brussels Sprouts Salad

This week’s recipe comes from Sweet & Savory by Shinee. I’ve been on a salad kick of late. I think they make great lunches, so you don’t feel overly full and sleepy at work. (I’m looking at you, burritos!) As per usual, the original recipe has much better photos than I will ever take, so…

Tip No. 3: Sandwich – The Fairhill

I ate a Taylor Gourmet sandwich for dinner last night at work, which reminded me of my favorite hoagie of theirs. The Fairhill is stuffed with delicious roasted, juicy sprouts. The other ingredients are listed above. Essentially all of the ingredients are great and the cilantro, pickles, cashews and aioli meld together for an unconventional sandwich….

Thai Coconut Curry with Brussels Sprouts and Tofu

Thai food is one of my favorites. I love peanuts, coconut, ginger, chili, lemongrass, and any combination of those flavors. I’ve been trying to stray away from my go-to Brussels sprouts recipes (i.e. roasting them and slightly tweaking the spices I dump on top.) so last week I experimented with a Thai Coconut Curry with Brussels Sprouts and…

Guest Post – Brussels sprouts curry

Welcome to our first guest cook post, all the way from … well my mother. These Brussels sprouts are made into an Indian curry. I traditionally don’t buy frozen sprouts, but my mother likes to use them in a variety of things, and they work well if you’re making them into something that’s more soup…

Tip No. 2 – Fried Brussels sprouts

Today’s tip comes from Side Door in Chicago. I’m not sure what the exact menu item is called but these are fried Brussels sprouts. Don’t they look fancy? The menu changes, so if you pop in you might not be able to get them that day/week. Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s lunch time. Keep…

Raw sprouts

Do you like raw vegetables? I’m not talking about cucumbers, lettuce or anything else traditionally eaten raw. But, are you willing to try other vegetables in their raw form? This past weekend I was ridiculed for regularly eating kale raw. I think kale is a great base for a salad, as long as you don’t…

Tip: Chez Josephine

Here’s a tip from NYC. A side of Brussels sprouts from Chez Josephine on 42nd St. If you have a tip (good or bad!) email me or post a comment below. More coming soon!
