Olive Angel Hair with Seared Brussels Sprouts

Olive Angel Hair With Seared Brussels Sprouts by Isa Moskowitz

I know it’s easy to run out of pasta ideas or fall into a pasta rut. But just a little produce and a few pantry items can pull you out! Salty olives and perfectly cooked Brussels sprouts, with their delicate layers and caramelized outer leaves, make this a totally satisfying dish that isn’t exactly run–of–the–mill. Chopped–up walnuts add some texture and help get the flavors to cling to the pasta. Recipe and photos from Isa Does It: Amazingly Easy, Wildly Delicious Vegan Recipes for Every Day of the Week*  by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. © 2013 All rights reserved.

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Pear, Cranberries, and Vegan Parmesan

brussel sprouts salad

I love fresh salads for lunch or sides, and frankly the bigger the better. I wanted a little bit of everything in here; crunch, sweetness, cheesiness, and something that can be prepared ahead of time and thrown together later. I think we all typically boil or roast brussels sprouts, but have you ever had these amazing little greens raw? They have a similar texture to shredded cabbage, but much more flavorful. Shaved Brussels sprouts, chewy dried cranberries, toasted almonds, fresh pear, and vegan Parmesan cheese make this salad irresistible.

While I wish I could take all the credit for the unique blend of flavors here, the inspiration for the Brussels sprouts came from a restaurant in NYC called the Vanderbilt. I was going to rework their recipe as a side dish, but after taking my first bite of this new version, I realized that serving the Brussels sprouts atop my favorite wild rice dish would create a stunning entrée.
