Brussels sprouts are a part of the cabbage family and date back to 1000 B.C. They were cultivated and gained popularity in Brussels and Belgium during the 13th Century.
Brussels sprouts are low in calories and an excellent source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B-6, and Magnesium.
They generally absorb the taste of the first seasoning used in cooking them. If you are looking for a savory taste, I recommend starting the process by parboiling them in salted water. And, if you prefer a sweeter taste, start with water seasoned with sugar, maple syrup, agave, or another sweetener.
Caution should be used to not overcook Brussels Sprouts. When they become gray-looking it tends to give them a super-strong pungent smell and taste.
The frying for this recipe can be done in a pan, deep fryer, or for a healthier option, an air-fryer.
YUM! These are so good and are gluten-free too! However, if you really insist on keeping that gluten, you can substitute traditional flour for the garbanzo flour…either way they taste so good.
This time I used toasted black sesame seeds but the white variety works just as well. These poppable sensations are a great source of protein with 15 grams per serving.
For a topping, I mixed together 3/4 cup vegan sour cream, 1/2 cup vegan, 1 1/2 tablespoons of crushed garlic, 1 tablespoon chopped herb of choice (basil, oregano, dill, etc.) and salt.
When I was first married I made a quiche a week. Since I have been vegan it was a challenge to get the cheesy-eggy consistency without traditional animal products. That is, until now!
This delish quiche comes together rather quickly. The pie crust is super-easy to make and comes out perfect each and every time. Feel free to add whatever vegetable you want, it does not have to be broccoli. Also, you can experiment with different cheeses, especially with so much variety available today!
