Brussels Sprout Chips
Brussels Sprouts is another Spring food. This week, I am posting a video blog post from Anita Capizzi, my nutrition guru. Here she is showing how to make chips with Brussels Sprouts. Seriously, who'd've thunk???!!!! They are amazing!!! Spring food with a crunch...and don't expect to have any left for later. Thanks, Anita!!!
Here's the recipe:
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
Outer Leaves of Brussels Sprouts (The larger sprouts are easier to make chips from.)
Peel off the outer layer of sprouts and discard. Then peel the next layer and save to a bowl. Keep the sprout itself in a zip loc bag for later use.
Toss sprout chips in the bowl with a fine mist of olive oil and sprinkle sea salt to taste.
Arrange on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure that they are in a single layer.
Bake for 8-10 min. watching after 6 min. to be sure that they don’t burn!
Enjoy this chip alternative!
P.S. If they don’t crisp up it’s usually because you added too much olive oil!

Egyptian Lentil Soup
One of my favorite culinary memories from my five and a half years in Egypt was the Lentil Soup lunches at the Khan Khaillili at the end of a successful bead hunt. Or sitting on the terrace of the Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan, looking out onto the Nile, enjoying this amazing soup. When I left Egypt, I craved this soup. Here's what I came up with - not nearly as good as I remember it, but good enough to calm my cravings.
3 cups clear vegetable or chicken stock.
1 cup red lentils*
1 tomato, quartered
1 small onion, quartered
4 cloves garlic, quartered
1 cup water
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
Fresh lemon wedges
Finely Chopped Cilantro or Parsley
Ghee or Butter melted
* I now use Mung Beans as it is more nutritious and better for blood sugar than Red Lentils.
