Brussels Sprouts Yum

I really enjoyed this healthy, protein packed meal that's loaded with fiber and wonderful phytonutrients💗 The ingredients and general instructions are listed below, and then I leave the magic making to you as you season to taste. Make it your own with your favorite spices! Consider my list of ingredients an idea or inspiration.


  • Brussels sprouts (I used about 1 pound)- Tops removed and thinly sliced

  • Red bell pepper (I used about 1/2 of one)- Julienne sliced

  • 1-2 garlic cloves, pressed

  • 1/4 onion, finely diced

  • Dandelion greens (I used 1/4 of a bunch), chopped

  • Walnuts (I used 1 cup)- omit if there is an allergy

  • Toasted black sesame seeds (you can use white seeds or omit entirely)- about a Tbsp

  • Cooked quinoa, prepared according to package instructions

  • Sesame oil

  • Avocado oil

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Turmeric

  • Coriander

  • Paprika


  1. Prepare quinoa (any quinoa works!) according to package instructions.

  2. Sauté walnuts in a skillet for about 2-3 minutes, with about a tablespoon of avocado oil to help brown the walnuts. Set walnuts aside to use as topping.

  3. Add a little more oil to the skillet you just used for the walnuts and sauté garlic and onions. Add Brussels sprouts and red bell pepper, stirring to make sure nothing burns. I like the veggies to brown a little bit but not be mushy.

  4. Sprinkle seasoning/herbs (salt, pepper, turmeric, coriander, paprika), black sesame seeds and sesame oil, a little at first and then adjust to taste.

  5. Mix in the chopped dandelion green and heat briefly until the greens wilt - this can be any leafy green, really!

  6. Enjoy the cooked veggies over quinoa... yum✳

Note: For a little [or a lot of] heat, add red pepper flakes or finely chopped jalapeno or serrano pepper.
