  3. Smash potatoes to desired consistency, then fold in Cheddar.

 

Brown Butter Brussels Sprouts

Perfectly crispy, perfectly sweet — just perfect for the chirpy vibes of the season, really! Did you know? Brussels sprouts are low in calories but is packed with fiber and many nutrients including vitamin K and vitamin C. Read on and check how to prep a 30-minute veggie recipe for brown butter brussel sprouts!

INGREDIENTS
Makes 8 servings

  • 2 lb Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 2 red onions, cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges

  • Pepper
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ⅓ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup golden raisins

INSTRUCTIONS

  2. 5 minutes before Brussels sprouts are finished, melt butter in a skillet on medium heat until foaming. Throw in almonds and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until almonds and butter are golden brown. Combine raisins, lemon juice and a pinch of salt with the brown butter mixture.
  3. Transfer cooked onions and sprouts on a bowl or a serving plate. Spoon brown butter mixture and drizzle over sprouts and onions.

 

Tempura Mushrooms

Finger food for the kids and the kids-at-heart! Serve a healthy bowl of protein and antioxidants with bite-sized mushrooms, fried tempura-style! A quick and easy vegetable recipe, all you need are a handful of ingredients and prep and cook time of just 8 minutes.

  5. Drain on paper towel, before serving with ranch dressing, marinara sauce, spicy mayo or any dip of your choice.

  2. Pour in the oyster sauce with 125mL water. Bring to a boil and cook until a sticky consistency is reached. Add the cooked beef back and mix before serving.
