Brussel sprout salad

How to re-create this recipe:


(Serves 2) 

  • 1- 9 Ounce bag of Shaved Brussel Sprouts 
  • 1 finely minced Shallot
  • 3 Baby Red Beets sliced thinly
  • 2 Tsp’s of Cranberries
  • 1 Tbsp of toasted Hazelnuts
  • 2 Ounces of Crumpled Goat Cheese
  • Olive Oil, salt and black pepper as needed
  • Sumac for garnish (optional)
  • Pomegranate Molasses for garnish (optional)

Putting it together:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit, line a small pan with parchment paper and toast your Hazelnuts for about 6-8 minutes. 
  2. Afterwards crank the heat up to 500 degrees/Broil mode and line another sheet tray with parchment paper. Spread your Brussel Sprouts across it, drizzle with Olive Oil and a generous amount of salt and black pepper. Give the Brussel Sprouts a good toss so the seasoning is well distributed and Broil for about 10-12 minutes until they look nice and charred. Give them a toss a couple of times throughout cooking so they can get evenly charred. Let them cool to room temperature .
  3. Spread your charred brussel sprouts on a nice platter and top them with your minced shallots, sliced beets, crumpled goat cheese, cranberries and Hazelnuts. 
  4. Sprinkle some Sumac powder on top and garnish with pomegranate molasses.  Enjoy!

Nourishment for your body: Brussel Sprouts are rich in vitamins and minerals. They contain vitamins C and K as well as have folate, calcium, iron and potassium. Having a diet that is high in cruciferous veggies such as Brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower is said to reduce certain types of cancers.

Tips when cooking: If you do not have pomegranate molasses you can substitute with a balsamic reduction glaze. The sumac can be substituted with grated lemon zest. If you are using a toaster oven, you will probably need to make the sprouts in two batches, otherwise you will crowd your pan and the sprouts will not get evenly charred. If you cannot find shaved Brussel sprouts you can make them at home either shaving them on a mandoline or pulsing them in a food processor (with a blade attachment after you removed 1/8th of an inch off  the root end of them).
