Roasted Brussels Sprouts And Mexican Corn!
So, I have to say that I am always taking pictures of my food but I often forget to write down what I put into it. I had the hardest time tonight finding both recipes and photos today. But, I did find some photos of some recent veggies and thought I would share them both.
Our family loves vegetables. Don’t get me wrong, we love our meat and we love our carbs but we have to have our veggies. This first recipe is both colorful on the plate and the best way I know to make Brussels sprouts to please even an anti-Brussels sprout person (well maybe).
ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS (for 2)
Fresh Brussels sprouts
1/4 red bell pepper
3 garlic cloves
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Bring to a boil a pot of water and once it is boiling, drop in the Brussels sprouts and let cook for 5 minutes. Slice the bell pepper lengthwise and the onion in big chops. Cut the garlic cloves into about 3 pieces each. Drain the sprouts and coat in the oil, along with the other vegetables. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. The roasting takes away the bitterness. Yum!
MEXICAN CORN (again, for 2)
2 ears of corn
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup chopped red bell peppers
1 chopped jalapeno
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Cut the corn off the ears, chop the vegetables, sprinkle it all with the spices and sauté it in the butter and olive oil for about 6 or 7 minutes (or until the pepper and onions are tender). Ok, now that was easy too!
Hi, my name is Susan and Permanent Posies (Creative Chaos) is my blog and my subject matter is…well, that depends on the day and the mood. But, for the most part, I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love.
