I have finally found a way to serve Brussels Sprouts that my 7 year old LIKED! Oh happy, happy day! I find it ironic that I even try to serve this particular vegetable to my son, I loathed them as a child. Despised them even. I had to choke them down-because in my house you did not tell the cook that you did not like her food, it would not end well if you did-but every single bite was pure torture. I revisited them, out of love for my sister, at a Christmas dinner a few years back and realized that it's true, everything tastes better with bacon. I've since enjoyed them steamed, sauteed, roasted and raw. Paulo was not yet convinced that the little cabbages were not the enemy.
This simple salad though may have helped him turn the corner. While not in love with the humble cabbage he at least no longer loathes them.
Brussels Spouts, outer leaves removed, washed and thinly sliced
1 apple, cored, thinly sliced
1 pear, cored, thinly sliced
walnuts, a handful
2 tablespoons Veganaise
the juice of one lemon
Sea salt to taste
Combine the Veganaise, lemon juice and salt, mix well. Toss the vegetables together in a large bowl, pour the dressing on and mix well to combine. EASY!
