Sometimes it seems to be a bit difficult to be a vegetarian. But, in reality, there are tons of recipes available, and, with a little creativity, there is always something good to eat around the house. Last night we were trying to figure out how to best prepare some fresh brussels sprouts that I had picked up at the market earlier in the day. My wife chose a recipe that involved roasting the sprouts along with olive oil, maple syrup, garlic salt and pepper. After removing from the oven, they are tossed together with craisons and roasted walnuts.. The recipe also calls for blue cheese, but we did not have any of that on hand ( not a problem as far as I am concerned!) What a great recipe!
While she was roasting the sprouts, I cut up some potatoes and mixed them with olive oil and seasonings and roasted them as well. I prepared sprouts by parboiling them and then frying them with onions in butter and then tossing them with lemon juice and slivered almonds.. this recipe is also a keeper..
What a delight to take such pleasure in simple foods – I think that our experience in the kitchen together counts as a date! 🙂
