This is the second year that me and Mrs. Mista have participated in the Daniel fast at our church. For those of you who aren't familiar, during the fast we avoid eating meat, sugar, caffeine, dairy and white flour. Challenging right? Well it's about sacrifice and cleansing both our body and spirit.
Anyway, here is a recipe I came up with last night with some inspiration from my friend Traci Anderson.
Soy-ginger Brussels sprouts with turmeric brown rice
1 cup brown rice 1 tbsp chicken bouillon or base 1 tsp seasoning salt 1 tsp turmeric
10 Brussels sprouts rinsed and quartered 1 small onion, cut in half and sliced 1 tbsp minced garlic 2 tbsp Olive oil 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce 1 tsp ground ginger
Prepare brown rice according to instructions on package but add chicken bouillon, seasoning salt and turmeric to boiling water before you add the rice.
While the rice is cooking, put the Olive oil in a hot skillet. Add the onion and reduce heat to medium. Stir occasionally. When onion begins to brown, add garlic and Brussels sprouts to the skillet. Cook until edges start to brown. Add the soy sauce and ginger and stir well. Add 1/4 cup of water. Stir quickly and scrap the bottom of the skillet. Cover and cook 5 more minutes.
Serve sprouts over the turmeric brown rice. Eat.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. I will continue to post Daniel Fast recipes as I come up with them
