on strange cravings

dinner adventures tonight:

After a sugary sendoff/bday celebration week, my body was a bit confused. I spend most of today between gutrot and an intense, insatiable craving for brussel sprouts. Yes. I’ve had them just once in my life before, yet I craved that cabbage-y, slightly nutty taste?

Oh, how I wish I kid.

So I hopped over to Kensington market and picked up a pile of brussel sprouts, and some swiss chard (another new ingredient for me tonight, too! and rich in vitamin c and k! yay!). I Howcast-ed the veggies, and ended up blanching+sauteeing the chard (stems included!), and roasting the brussel sprouts up in the oven, and serving it all up with some trusty tempeh, bean sprouts, and other bean sprouts, and some chia seeds of course. Um, and I’m just gonna go ahead and say it… it was effing scrumptious.

Dare I say brussel sprouts may be my new best friend? Stay tuned folks, shit may be about to get Craaaazy!
