No matter which culture or what holiday, celebrations with family and friends almost always revolve around FOOD!
Here’s two of my favourite recipes that are delicious, nutritious, and vegetarian.
Best Baked Sweet Potatoes
Super simple, and naturally sweet.
READY IN: About 1 hour.
SERVES: Cook 1 potato per guest
Scrub the skin lightly before preparing.
Sweet potatoes tend to get a little juicy while baking, so lining the baking sheet first ensures an easy clean up.
The pricking technique is always used when baking potatoes as it reduces baking time and ensures the potatoes won’t burst.
Sweet potatoes can take anywhere from 45-60 minutes to cook, depending on their size. They are done when you stick a fork into the thickest part of the potato and you don’t feel resistance.
Basic Brussels with Balsamic
Cruciferous vegetables like brussels are packed with nutrients!
READY IN: 30 mins
1 1/2 lbs Brussels Sprouts
2 TBSP Olive Oil
2 Cloves of Garlic peeled and sliced
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and sliced thinly
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 TBSP Butter
salt & freshly ground black pepper
