Spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts and MySpiceSage.com coupon!

I saw roasted Brussels sprouts on Simply life, and thought what a great idea, I had never roasted Brussels sprouts before. So I put my own spin on it!

  • 10 big Brussels sprouts quartered
  • 1/4 red onion
  • one tablespoon garam masala and a little salt
  • 3 cloves of chopped garlic
  • olive oil
  1. chop the Brussels sprouts add the onion, garlic, salt and garam masala
  2. roast at 400 degrees for 30 minutes its that simple!
It was really delicious.
The ingredients
Yummy spicy roasted Brussels sprouts

Then yesterday I had some plantains, I coated them in Tandoori seasoning, salt and oil and pan fried them. The hubby loved them and ate all of them!

Coat the plantains with tandoori mix and salt, lightly fry
Just be careful the spice mix burns a little on a high heat.
