How to make not-liked-food tasty!

15Jan12

I don’t really like brussel sprouts. And I don’t really like sweet potatoes. Neither I like cilantro. Le gros père doesn’t really like ginger. But I think, I should learn to like all this stuff. Maybe brussel sprouts aren’t that bad?!

I gave it a try and found this recipe for a curry with brussel sprouts. Being too lazy for buying a pomegranate, I just decided to use an old apple that was waiting for being eaten. Not the same, but more regional. (Ok, we won’t start to talk about regional ingredients. Sweet potatoes? Well…)

We had the whole thing with Basmati rice, and yes: it was veeeery good!! So maybe we really learn to enrich our food choice!

For 2, you need for the curry:

1 onion
1 garlic clove
30 g of fresh ginger
a little bit of oil
300g brussel sprouts
400g sweet potatoes
1,5 tsp curry powder
200 ml coconut milk
200 ml veggie stock
1 lime
1 apple
fresh cilantro

Chop the onion, the garlic and the ginger very finely. Heat the oil in a pot, add onion, garlic and ginger and sauté it until translucent. Meanwhile, peel and chop the sweet potatoes into cubes, clean the brussel sprouts, cut them into halves. Add sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts in the pot and continue sautéing.

Dust with the curry powder, wait until it’s fragrant, add veggie stock and coconut milk, cover with a lid and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.

Peel and cut the apple, add it to the curry. Season the curry with grated lime peel, lime juice, salt, and if you want with chili (depends on your curry powder), chop the cilantro and serve the curry with some cilantro.
