Y’all know that cooking is one in all my biggest passions, however even I have my limits.
After three weeks of preparing breakfast, lunch, and dinner for our household of 4 practically each day whereas we’re sheltering at home, I’ve acquired to confess that my artistic concepts are beginning to dry up. Particularly when fresh ingredients are limited and last-minute grocery runs are nonexistent.
Great products that you can use in your life.
That mentioned, this time at dwelling has additionally been stuffed with nice meals, since a lot of what we now have to sit up for every day consists of beginning the day with pancakes, or pouring a glass of pinot noir, or gathering across the dinner desk for one thing actually nourishing. We’ve eaten a lot of tacos throughout this time, probably as a result of we’ve all the time acquired beans, rice, and corn tortillas available — but in addition as a result of there’s simply one thing about a really good taco that hits the spot like nothing else.
I’ve been persevering with to prepare dinner up lots of plant-based dinners, and now much more so since all our fish and meat is mainly coming from the freezer. These brussels sprouts tacos have been my most profitable vegetarian experiment of our quarantine up to now — even Adam mentioned that he “didn’t miss the meat,” and the spicy peanut sauce and mashed avocado make these really feel actually substantial.
Even higher, they leverage brussels sprouts, radishes, and onions: three veggies that may final actually weeks when saved correctly (brussels and radishes within the produce drawer of the fridge, onions in a darkish spot within the pantry.) As I’ve shared earlier than, good pantry meals depend on veggies which can be both frozen or hearty sufficient to final a very long time — like these, or just about any root greens.
The key to those tacos actually is within the sauce: this peanut sauce is a stealth tremendous hero that takes the remainder of the components and turns them into one thing addictive. The recipe makes about 1 1/four cups of sauce so that you’ll have some additional, however in the event you do determine to double it, you gained’t be sorry. Use it to make a stir fry, drizzle on a spring roll bowl, or combine with a little bit rice vinegar or additional lime juice and make it your go-to salad dressing all week lengthy.
Scroll on for the recipe, and I’d love to listen to within the feedback how y’all are getting artistic along with your pantry components this week!
