Who Knew Brussel Sprouts Tasted So Good?

Vegetables are my jam, and my new favorite is the brussel sprout! I never wanted to try them because they have such a bad rep, but my bestie Jess made them for me one night and I am never looking back. I sing their praises to anyone who will listen and have been incorporating them into every meal I can for the past couple of weeks. This is my favorite recipe so far…

Mostacholi with brussel sprouts & mushrooms.


-Pasta {use whatever you like, the dish pictured above has brown rice noodles but I have been on a Shirataki Noodle kick lately so I actually mixed those in with it for a lower calorie meal}

– Daiya Cheddar Block

-Olive Oil

-Pasta Sauce

-Spices {I used Kosher Salt, Basil, Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Chili Powder}

-Brussel Sprouts

-Any other vegetable you would want to eat, I added mushrooms tonight!

1. Boil water and add pasta when ready. Unless you are using the shiritaki noodles then just follow the instructions on the bag.

7. Drain noodles, return them to the pot {over low heat}, cut little pieces of the Daiya and mix in with noodles until melted. Then add sauce until hot, mix in veggies at this point.

After an amazing day with 3 of my good friends, it was great to come home and cook this  quick, healthy, and delicious meal. It’s quite my kind of comfort food that I can’t help but keep in the meal rotation often! I hope y’all have an amazing week, I know I will! Much Love, Jenny!
