Middle Eastern-style Brussels Sprout Salad

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2019 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com

Baharat, Arabic for 'spice', is an aromatic spice blend used in Middle Eastern cuisine. What spices are included in the blend vary geographically, but you can generally expect black pepper, coriander, paprika, cardamom, nutmeg, cumin, cloves, and cinnamon. It is used as the seasoning for beef, lamb, chicken, seafood, and vegetables as well a dry rub or marinade.

  • 300 g Brussels sprouts, halved
  • Extra-virgin olive oil to drizzle
  • 125 g Full-fat Greek yogurt
  • Zest and juice ½ lemon
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp Fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Pine nuts, toasted lightly in a frying pan with a little oil
  • Baharat to sprinkle
  1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil, then add the sprouts and cook for 4-5 minutes – they should still be vibrant green and have some crunch. Drain, rinse under cold running water, then dry briefly with sheets of kitchen paper and transfer to a serving dish. Season lightly with salt and pepper and toss with a good drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the Greek yogurt, lemon zest and juice, garlic, mustard and chopped. Season to taste, then toss through the sprouts. Sprinkle over the pine nuts, the baharat and extra parsley to serve.

Rarely cook with sprouts. I once did but ended up with rather disgusting result. Maybe I should give this a try and see how it goes. :)
