The word Eurasian means a combination of European, or European American, and Asian cultures. When I made this recipe I was trying to create crispy-crunchy Brussels sprouts that had an emphasis on Italian flavors. My decision to use Pad Thai rice noodles seemed like just the perfect and unexpected accompaniment to the dish. Additionally, the rice noodles are gluten-free so, in my mind, a winner!
You can serve the Brussels Sprouts on their own as a side dish or mixed with traditional pasta but I would strongly suggest you first try using rice noodles.
I went light on the red pepper flakes, which can be adjusted to individual taste. I used the CHICKENLESS Better than Bouillon however the vegetable variety would also work great.
This dish also works great for leftovers but I recommend adding a splash of water and a drizzle of olive oil before reheating.
I really enjoy the taste and texture of Baby Bok Choy. This recipe takes the very best of the vegetable and adds a satisfying savory, spicy, with some subliminal sweet undertones.
Baby Bok Choy is a great source of Vitamins A, C, and K plus is extremely low in calories and only contains a tiny amount of fat. The texture and taste of the green leaves are similar to spinach and the stalks are similar to celery.
It is good raw but much better cooked. Baby Bok Choy is a staple in Chinese cuisine.
You can also try to grill the prepared Baby Bok Choy on the grill. It was raining today in Southern California so I opted for the oven! To cut calories and fat, eliminate the vegan feta.
Excellent and Quick Meatless Monday Option for dinner tonight!
I am not quite sure what makes me crave caramel this time of year. Perhaps it is because fall was always caramel apple season when I was growing up.
In addition to making a lot of pumpkin recipes leading up to Thanksgiving, I also find myself experimenting with caramelizing.
If you are not a fan of eggplant, you can always substitute zucchini or broccoli rabe.
