Brussels Sprout Fried Rice with Cashew Nuts

A recent meal I made was Brussels Sprout Fried Rice with Cashew Nuts.   It was an easy to prepare and very tasty meal.


2 teaspoons of Sesame oil

2 heaping cups of halves Brussels Sprouts

1 medium onion chopped finely

2 cloves garlic chopped finely

1 tablespoon soy sauce or Tamari.  I used soy sauce

1 tablespoon Agave

2 cups cooked and cooled brown rice

1/4 cup cashew nuts


Heat a large skillet with the oil over medium heat

When hot add the Brussels Sprouts and saute until tender(about 4 minutes)

Add the onions and garlic and cook for another few minutes until the onion is just beginning to turn a golden brown

Add the soy sauce and agave and stir well to coat the vegetables

Add the rice and cashew nuts and continue cooking for another couple of minutes or until the rice is piping hot

Serve immediately


This was a very good dish.  One thing that I would do differently..I would steam the Brussels Sprouts first and then saute them.  Just browning them in the pan kept them a bit hard for our taste.  Otherwise this was a great dish.
