Brussel Sprouts + Kumare

April 18th, 2013 at 06:19 am

We finally got around to watching Kumare on Netflix. I thought it was excellent. The movie is about a man who pretends to be a spiritual guru and gathers a following - "hoping to prove the absurdity of blind faith." It wasn't quite as I expected, it's a movie that will really make you think.


I don't know if I have ever particularly had brussel sprouts before. There were some brussel sprouts at Easter and I was pleasantly surprised how good they were. So dh tried a new recipe last night - we are brussel sprout converts. Even LM (the picky one) didn't think they were bad. BM (not picky) was not a fan.

MIL's recipe was just to roast in the oven with some salt and pepper blend. Probably tossed in olive oil. YUM.


I invested in some tupperware last night. I got some divided containers so I could spice up the kids lunch a bit, and fulfilled some container needs we have. I just went with the cheap plastic stuff because most our current stuff is "disposable" or "came with food packaging" type stuff that has lasted many many years for us. So, it was not a big investment. Will see what works for us and at that point can buy more of what we like, and can clear out some of the old/sad stuff in our cupboards. It was a small investment, but will be a nice one. I also invested in some re-useable watter bottles.

    We have been eating lots of brussel sprouts this winter. We roast them them with red potatoes, garlic, onion, mushrooms, oil olive, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. We have added sweet potatoes and carrots occasionally too.

    And cut them in 1/2 lengthwise, pan fry them with onion and pecans. Yum!

    I had brussel sprouts for the first time maybe a year or so ago? I think it was at a church potluck. If I remember correctly, they weren't too bad.

    For others reading...Brussel sprouts are like mini cabbages in my opinion and like baselle mentioned we cut ours in half when we roast them. I've recently roasted asparagus too...with olive oil, salt and pepper!
