Have you notice I've been on a bit of a Coconut kick lately? This Coconut Oil is great stuff! You can enter to win a 32 oz jar of non-gmo, certified organic Virgin Coconut Oil HERE.
Also, I was interviewed by Joyce at It's Your Life and I'd be thrilled if you checked it out!
Since I had so much quinoa, coconut milk and Coconut Oil left I made Garlic Ginger Quinoa again. This time I served it with roasted Brussels Sprouts. I was a bit surprised that my husband asked for seconds! Quinoa is very high in protein and low in fat. The coconut milk is higher in fat that I normally use so next time I'll substitute coconut water.
Stovetop Roasted Brussels Sprouts
2 cups quartered brussels sprouts
1 tablespoon coconut oil
a dash of salt and pepper (optional)
*I prefer to steam my brussels sprouts for 4 minutes before I "roast" them. I also use the stove instead of the oven so I don't heat up the house.* If you prefer to use the oven use THIS recipe.
Stovetop: place coconut oil in a pan on high. Add steamed brussels sprouts and "roast" for up to 12 minutes or until browned. Stir occasionally.
