Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Grrr... again, no pictures. I keep forgetting to take pictures, by the time I am done cooking, I just want to eat. :)

  • approx. 15-20 brussel sprouts
  • about 1 cup sliced (lengthwise) carrots
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • Morningstar veggie bacon, crumbled
  • ½ an onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • half a lime

Soak brussel sprouts in water for about 15 minutes, Cut sprouts in half, chop garlic. In a large pan, heat oil and butter on medium heat, place brussel sprouts cut/flat side down, and carrots, sprinkle with salt. Cook for about 12-15 minutes, until bottoms of Brussel sprouts are browned. While cooking, make rice according to package for 6 people. Add onion, garlic, and pepper to Brussels sprouts/carrots during last minute or two. Crumble and stir in bacon, Squeeze lime over everything and serve with rice.

We added a sprinkling of apple cider vinegar before serving to add to the sweet and tangy, but it was good without it too.
