Brussels Sprouts Caeser Salad

This is a vegetarian version from the known caesar salad. Two words to describe it: Simply delicious! I was skeptic at the beginning to add Brussels sprouts into a salad, but it turned out giving a really refreshing touch to it.


Overall Time: 25 min | Serves: 3-4

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Romaine salad
  • 4-5 big Brussels sprouts
  • Dry bread cut into cubes (as much as you wish)
  • Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 2-3 tbsp grated Parmigiano cheese
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Salt & pepper

How to:

Preheat oven to 200°C. On a baking sheet spread the bread cubes and toss them with a generous amount of oil and some pepper and salt. Put into the oven until brown and crispy.

Chop the romaine and the Brussels sprouts into fine slices. The thinner you chop the Brussels sprouts the nicer they blend into the salad. Prepare the sauce adding in a bowl the mayonnaise, the mustard, finely chopped garlic, the lemon juice, the Parmigiano and a generous amount of olive oil. Mix it together. If desired add salt and pepper but recall that the croutons already have some.

Mix the chopped lettuce and sprouts with the sauce and plate it. Top with the croutons when ready to serve. Enjoy!

Easy granola

This might be my discovery of this year. I always love a nice bowl for breakfast and it would never be complete without some crunchy granola. The only thing I don’t like about the granola at the supermarkets it that you never know what it contains. Thus, I wanted to try out the following recipe. Let me tell you, it is amazing! The best thing about this recipe is that you can almost add whatever kind of nuts or seeds you want.


Overal time: 30 min | Prep time: 5 min | Baking time: 25 min

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

How to

Mix everything together and spread it on a baking sheet. 

Put in the oven for 15 minutes at 180°C. Take it out, mix it so that everything gets golden and put it again in the oven for another 10 minutes. Enjoy!
