For those of you who know I try to get my hubby Jesse to eat more like me (meh), you will be happy to hear that he was so pumped about this pasta that he ate half the plate before he went out to eat! He gave it a 10 out of 10. Can you believe it?
I'm not going to lie though, I don't have exact amounts. They are just approximate so you are going to have to tune into your intuitive side here and make it happen no matter what. And heh, there are only 5 ingredients. How can you not try it?
- 2 cups Brussels sprouts
- 1 tbsp of butter (preferably organic)
- About 10 shakes of the herbamare salt or to taste (see pic below)
- About 1/4 cup of feta cheese
- 1 - 2 cups of cooked brown rice pasta (or any whole grain pasta will work)
While your pasta is cooking, chop the ends/roots off the Brussels sprouts, cut them in half and then steam them until they are soft (use your common sense here). I'm not sure of the exact steaming time, but it was between 10 to 15 minutes.
Once done, place them in a bowl and add the butter and salt to taste.
Blend Brussels sprouts in a food processor and then place the mix back in the bowl. Add the feta. Add the pasta. Done. P.S. Aim for a "more green than pasta" ratio as per the above picture.
So easy. Now think of all the other vegetables you can make things like this with.
