Sunbutter Baked Brussels

These creamy-delicious veggies were mentioned on my last “What I Ate Wednesday“. They made the perfect salad topper, no dressing needed!

Ingredients:

1 lb brussel sprouts
4 Tbsp Sunbutter
4 Tbsp Nama Shoyu
pinch red pepper flakes
2 droppers NuNaturals stevia

Preheat oven to 400. Mix sauce ingredients and coat brussel sprouts. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes.

What I Ate Wednesday

The return of “What I Ate Wednesday”! I didn’t take pictures of all the liquids I drank today but it’s been quite hot so there was a significant amount of water and herbal tea outside of what you see here.

Rooibos Superfruit tea hot chocolate (steeped the teabags and added raw cacao and stevia).

Cinnamon Ginger Green Juice with a little cayenne. I’ve really been loving cayenne in my juices lately.

A bag of carrots, a sliver of avocado, and a little bag of black olives for lunch.

Dinner was a huge salad of romaine, raw corn, green onions, garlic, cherry tomatoes and brussel sprouts baked in sunbutter, stevia and coconut aminos.

A rare non-chocolate bar dessert, Coconut Secret’s coconut bar.

Christmas Feast Countdown Day 4 – Shredded Brussels with Chestnuts

This was my first time trying chestnuts! I don’t know why it’s never occurred to me to eat them but suddenly I was seeing them everywhere this season and absolutely had to try them! This dish turned out great and seems to be a good one even for brussel sprout haters (tried and tested 😉 ).

Ingredients:

1 cup cooked chestnuts, chopped
1 tbsp coconut oil
4 cups thinly sliced or shredded brussel sprouts
1 clove garlic

Saute garlic, coconut oil, and chestnuts for a few minutes over medium high heat. Add brussel sprouts and stir for just a few minutes more.


A fun side note: This is my 100th post! I’ve had a great time putting this blog together this year and am so excited for what’s to come 🙂

Food Porn for a Saturday- Parsnip Polenta from Emily Eats

Parsnip Polenta for an Autumn Night

I know its not Autumn, but I wanted to post a shot one of my favorite recipes I made again recently from the blog Emily Eats: Parsnip Polenta for an Autumn Night. Its lighter than cornmeal polenta and absolutely delicious with the caramelized onions and roasted brussel sprouts!
