It's Good to Go Green

I don't know how brussel sprouts got their bad reputation. I love brussel sprouts. Make them like this recipe for your loved ones, and you'll change brussel sprout's reputation, one person at a time.

Dried shrimps - 1 tbsp
Brussel sprouts - 3 cups julienned, shredded or chopped
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Curry powder (optional) 1 tsp


  • Heat the oil on medium heat

  • Put the shrimp in (You might have to go to an asian market to get this, BUT GO! You'll find so many things - get some fish sauce, oyster sauce, hot sauce, greens, live seafood. You'll find a world of new tastes for a great price)

  • Fry the shrimp for a few seconds until it's brown

  • Add the brussel sprouts and stirfry until some is brown, for that great caramelized taste

  • Add salt and curry powder (if you'd like a little kick)

  • Stirfry again for another few seconds until well mixed

Serve with some rice, and brussel sprouts might become your new favorite veggie dish.

A Different Bed of Rice

How many times do you see a recipe that says serve on a "Bed of rice". That bed of rice thing can get a bit boring time after time. How about changing it up and using some vegetables instead. Here I simply used some sprouts and some asparagus. It's very simple, very easy:

  • Roast the asaparagus with salt, pepper and olive oil
  • Saute the sprouts in a little olive oil

Done, in less than the time it takes to make rice.
Then when you add a great entree with a wonderful sauce, the sauce with the sprouts and asparagus make a perfect combination!
