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 heart Brussels Sprouts! Growing up I remember my mom anxiously awaiting spring’s harvest. These yummy small cabbages can be served savory or sweet.
I used maple syrup in the initial cooking phase to achieve the underlying sweetness in the finished dish. The creaminess comes from Go Veggie’s Vegan Chive and Garlic Cream Cheese.
I have mentioned before that I used to not like the taste of Brussels Sprouts. I have spent many hours creating tasty creations with them and am now a BS-convert!
Did you know these sweet little cabbage-wanna-bes boast 124% of the RDA of Vitamin C. Plus a serving only contains 38 calories and 0.3 grams of fat!
The key, in my opinion, is to make them the a star ingredient in several of my creations because, after all, we all need some extra C!
You can serve this with any type of grain and can also substitute the red/yellow pepper with green.
