I can get you to try Brussel Sprouts

This past weekend I made brussel sprouts for a Ping Pong tournament. I was able to get 8 people who have never tried them before and 2 people that stated they “hated” them to enjoy one of my favorite vegetables. Here’s how I did it:

-Buy fresh brussel sprouts
-Cut off the bottoms
-Then, slice in halves
-Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees
-Toss brussels with 2 tsp of Olive oil
-Lay them on a cooking sheet
-Sprinkle a pinch of Sea Salt and pepper over the entire batch
-Bake for about 30-40 minutes or until they begin turning slightly brown

ENJOY! I know you will.

What is it?
-Whole Grain and high in fiber
-Complete Protein
-Similar to cous cous

Where do you buy it?
-Most grocery stores, like Stop & Shop in the health food section or your local health food store.

How do you cook it?
-As a side dish or a cold salad
-Basic preparation:
•1 cup quinoa
•1 1/2 cups cold water
•Optional: 1/2 tsp salt
Quinoa Cooking Directions:
1.Soak the quinoa for 15 min – 1/2 hour in it’s cooking pot. Soaking helps quinoa to cook evenly, and loosens up the outer coating of saponin, which can give a bitter taste if not removed
2.If you don’t have time for a longer soaking, use hot water and soak for five minutes
3.To Rinse: Stir the quinoa with your hand, and carefully pour off the rinsing water, using a fine mesh strainer at the last
4.Drain quinoa well in the strainer, transfer to the cooking pot, add 1 1/2 cups water & 1/2 tsp salt if desired
5.Bring to a boil, cover with a tight fitting lid, and turn the heat down to simmer
6.Cook for 15 minutes
7.Remove quinoa from heat and allow to sit five minutes with the lid on
8.Fluff quinoa gently with a fork and serve
