Balsamic Brussels Sprouts with Goat Cheese and Cherry Tomatoes
I know brussels sprouts are a hit or miss vegetable. People either love them or hate them. I love them, especially cooked this way. Its really easy.
1 lb. brussels sprouts (bottom core removed, thinly sliced or shaved)
1 tbsn butter
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
handful of sweet cherry tomatoes (halved)
goat cheese crumbles
Melt the butter in a skillet, add sprouts, and begin to sauté. After a few minutes add balsamic vinegar to taste. I like balsamic so I add about 1/4 c. over the coarse of a few minutes, still sauteing. Take off the heat when the sprouts are done to your liking. Put on plates and sprinkle with goat cheese and tomatoes.
I will be trying this recipe for sure next week. I am a huge fan of carrot cake and I love banana bread. This Carrot-Banana Bread recipe from allrecipes.com sounds delicious! Thanks to Member Allison DuBrow for making the recommendation!

One of our favorite soups is a leek and potato soup. All you will need is:
1 leek (white section thinly sliced)
1 32 oz container of chicken stock
4-6 yukon or red potatoes (diced)
2 portabella mushrooms (chopped)
1 tbsp oil
Optional: spinach, broccoli florets, peas, etc.
Sautee the garlic and leeks in oil. When they start to brown or are translucent, add mushrooms and stir. After roughly 2-3 minutes on medium heat, add broth and potatoes. When potatoes are tender, remove from heat and serve.
Other optional additions include spinch, broccoli, peas, etc. Add these items after you remove the soup from heat. Cover the soup and allow the veggies to steam for a few minutes, then serve.

My sister made me a salad one night inspired by one she’d had in a Portland restaurant. You can use just about any kind of beet, green, and nut with this simple salad. Try it with an olive oil dressed salad in place of the brussel sprouts and candied walnuts in place of the pistachios. It’s delicious.
- Brussels Sprouts (about 3 per person)
- Beets, Golden preferred (about 1 small beet or .5 large beet per person)
- Marscapone Cheese (about 3T. per person)
- Roasted Pistachios
- Butter or Olive Oil for Sauteing
Wash unpeeled beets. Rub with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast at 425 degrees until tender. Let Cool.
Cut ends off of brussel sprouts and shave or slice thinly. Saute in butter or olive oil until wilted (about 5 minutes). Season with sea salt and pepper.
To assemble salads, smear about 3T. of marscapone cheese on each plate (sprinkle a little sea salt on top if desired). Place 3-4 half inch slices of peeled beets on top of the cheese. Mound the shaved brussel sprouts on top of the beets and top with crushed pistachios. Serve at room temperature.
