Chai Brussels Sprouts

I couldn’t decide what I wanted to eat tonight.  So I ate a little bit of everything.  Problem solved.

I’ve been seriously lacking in the fruits and veggies department lately.  This is highly unusual for me, so I was craving all kinds of produce at dinner.

IMG_3576Chai Tea Brussels Sprouts. Yes, you read that right.  Chai. Tea. Brussels. Sprouts. It sounds weird, but give it a shot.

  • Ingredients: Brussels sprouts, olive oil, 1 chai tea bag
  • Instructions: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Wash and cut the brussels sprouts.  Toss with olive oil.  Cut open the tea bag and sprinkle some of the tea leaves over the brussels sprouts (I only used about half the bag).  Roast for 15 minutes.

It is super easy, and gives the brussels sprouts a sweet and spicy flavor.  I’m sure it would work with other teas, as well.  Try it!

All together now:

I’m going to go crack open our bottle of Hallowine from yesterday, and enjoy a glass with one of the pumpkin brownies that just came out of the oven.  Recipe to come tomorrow. Bonus:  they could be made vegan very easily!

How did you spend your Sunday?
