After a long needed Summer Hiatus I am back
writing, developing recipes and snapping
colourful pictures of my food!
With the weather changing we tend to think about comfort foods to warm our body and soul.
I like to change the preparation as well but, try to keep my meals still light in calories but, not light in taste.
Here is a simple but delicious way to utilize the ever so perfect and pretty
Brussel Sprouts are under used but,
they pack a nutritious punch and prepared well, they add a wonderful side or lunch to any meal.
I hope this recipe will inspire you to add this to your valued veggie list
Let's get started~
Apple and Brussel Sprout Medley
1 or 2 bunches of Brussel Sprouts
2 Gala apples cored, diced
1 bunch of broccoli, florets separated
1/2 cauliflower, florets separated
1 leek, sliced into coins and washed,
light green and white stalk only
3-4 tbsp. EVOO
4 stems of parsley
1/2 tsp each salt, pepper, caraway seeds
First things first.
Slice off the browned end of the sprouts.
Cut in half lengthwise.
Lightly cover in water and bring to a boil.
After 2-3 min. add the broccoli and cauliflower .
Cook until almost fork tender.
In the same saucepan,
add the oil and sauté the leeks,
2-3 min on med. high
Toss in the remaining ingredients, reserving the apples
Cook together, tossing to cook 5-6 min.
on med. high heat
Toss in the apples when the veggies are almost cooked. Sauté to soften the apple 1-2 min more.
Adjust the seasoning if needed.
Garnish with extra parsley
Enjoy with love!
