This is pretty much all I've eaten this week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner--please, don't judge me. I made this as an appetizer for the ramen recipe below and it ended up stealing the show. I'd been craving Brussels Sprouts and had some leftover bacon, so I started googling "Bacon and Brussels Sprouts recipe" but, as per usual, couldn't find what I was looking for so I ended up using ingredients I thought would blend well together. When I finally decided to make this a real recipe, it was easy because everything is almost equal parts. This recipe doesn't take too long making it really convenient, and everyone I've made it for has gobbled it up, asking for more. Let's just say, I've gone through 6 lbs of Brussels this week...
Make sure you have some non-stick foil. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Cover a cookie sheet with non stick foil and place bacon on foil. Cook until desired done-ness. Remove from oven and place on paper towels to drain grease. Place Brussels on cookie sheet and coat with bacon grease. Place back in the oven and cook for 13-15minutes (temp.'s will vary depending on your oven). While Brussels are cooking, add remaining ingredients in a bowl. Chop the bacon and add it to the marinade. When Brussels are done, add them to the mixture and coat thoroughly with marinade.
Serve warm and enjoy!!
I have been craving ramen for a little while and cannot seem to find any quick-cook GF products in the health stores. Then the search for GF ramen noodles
began but I could not find anything really close. That being said, the noodles I used (in my humble opinion) fail to really hit the mark in making this dish truly reminiscent of ramen. I'd recommend trying to find a package of GF shiritaki noodles, although I couldn't find any at my usual Denver health stores. Anyway, here's the recipe, it's still delicious!
This raw winter salad makes me feel like summer. Beets and carrots are definitely two of my favorite vegetables and not just for taste reasons. Beets belong to the chenopod family. They're extremely high in antioxidants (specifically vitamin C and manganese), anti-inflammatory molecules and they're also known to trigger the Phase 2 cellular detoxification process. That being said, beet fiber and carrot fiber are shown to particularly provide special health benefits to our digestive tract and cardiovascular system. If you're experiencing constipation, a daily serving of beets will make you feel like you want to put a bikini. It can be difficult to imagine how the hardy, crunchy, and often rough-looking exterior of beets and carrots can be transformed into something sweet and light. This salad transcends that perspective, delighting your taste buds and your waistline.
