Brussels Sprouts Fried Rice

Brussels Sprouts Fried Rice from VWAV by Isa Moskowitz

I put Brussels sprouts in everything. Even fried rice is not safe from that little cruciferous flavor bomb! And until someone invents an even more awesome vegetable, I will continue to overuse them. Not that anyone is complaining. This version of fried rice is wonderfully aromatic with the addition of fresh herbs and scallions. And a small handful of pine nuts goes a long way to adding another decadent layer of flavor. You can top the dish with some gingery tofu, or toss in some browned tofu, if you’d like it to be an entrée. Or simply serve in addition to a bigger Thai-inspired spread.

Kasha Varnitchkes

Kasha Varnitchkes

Kasha Varnitchkes is a classic Jewish dish of buckwheat groats combined with pasta. I’m not sure that bow tie pasta (farfalle) has always been the traditional choice, but it’s the contemporary favorite. If you’re a kasha fan, you’ll enjoy this simple dish; it doesn’t set of any flavor fireworks, but it’s easy and comforting, like many an Eastern European specialty. Photos by Evan Atlas.

Kasha, or toasty brown buckwheat groats, is a grain that’s popular in Eastern European cuisines.

Kasha is highly compatible with onions and mushrooms, which are in abundance here.
