Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby of What's Gaby Cooking.

Looking for a side dish that you can make throughout the fall and winter? These Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts by Tasty Kitchen member Gaby will fit the bill. Honestly, it’s hard to resist anything that’s drenched in lemon and garlic.

If you have never been a fan of Brussels sprouts (and I get it, because I used to feel the same way), I beg you to try this recipe. When the sprouts cook in the olive oil and begin to caramelize, they turn from those unfortunate Brussels sprouts of your childhood into something magically delicious. Trust me on this one.

Let’s get started.

For this recipe, you will Brussels sprouts, olive oil, lemon zest and juice, garlic, salt and pepper. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby of What's Gaby Cooking.

Trim the ends off the Brussels sprouts and remove the outer layer of each sprout. Often, those outer leaves are a little tough or even slightly shriveled, so you want to ditch those.

Cut each Brussels sprout in half lengthwise. This will help them cook faster and makes for a really pretty presentation.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby of What's Gaby Cooking.

Pour the olive oil in a large skillet set over medium heat and let the oil get hot.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby of What's Gaby Cooking.

Add the Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sprouts start to caramelize and turn that gorgeous golden brown color. The insides of the Brussels sprouts should be tender when pierced with a fork.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby of What's Gaby Cooking.

While the Brussels sprouts are cooking, mince some garlic.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby of What's Gaby Cooking.

Add all of that fragrant garlic to the sprouts about halfway through cooking. Now it’s time to do some more frequent stirring so that the garlic doesn’t burn.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby of What's Gaby Cooking.

Once the Brussels sprouts are cooked, turn the heat to low and grate in the lemon zest. This adds an amazing bright flavor!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby of What's Gaby Cooking.

Squeeze the lemon juice into the pan and stir well to coat the sprouts.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Lemon and Garlic Drenched Brussels Sprouts Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Gaby of What's Gaby Cooking.

Transfer the Brussels sprouts to a serving dish and sprinkle that nutty grated Gruyere cheese over top. Heavenly!

Sweet Potato Tuna Patties

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Potato Tuna Patties. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Olivia of Primavera Kitchen.

As soon as autumn hits, my craving for sweet potatoes sets in. I will eat them any way them come, whether mashed, baked, twice-baked or roasted. So, when I saw “sweet potato” in the title of these Sweet Potato Tuna Patties by Tasty Kitchen member Olivia, my curiosity was piqued. In fact, I ran straight out to the store to buy the ingredients.

If you’ve ever had tuna or salmon patties, be prepared for the tuna patty that will spoil you forever. From the natural sweetness of the potatoes to the zing of the chili powder, this is a recipe that you will want to make over and over again.

If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator, then reheat in a 350ºF oven when ready to eat.

Let’s get started.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Potato Tuna Patties. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Olivia of Primavera Kitchen.

For this recipe, you will need sweet potatoes, canned tuna, green onions, breadcrumbs (gluten-free, if you prefer), eggs, red onion, yellow pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Potato Tuna Patties. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Olivia of Primavera Kitchen.

Chop the sweet potatoes and boil them until tender when pierced with a fork, about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and run them under cold water. This will stop them from cooking further and will cool the mixture down so that the eggs don’t cook when added. That wouldn’t be pretty!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Potato Tuna Patties. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Olivia of Primavera Kitchen.

Transfer the sweet potatoes to a large bowl and mash with the back of a fork.

Garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper. What a fabulous punch of flavor!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Potato Tuna Patties. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Olivia of Primavera Kitchen.

Using your hands, shape the mixture into patties. You could make mini ones for appetizer-sized patties, or larger ones for a dinner portion. I made my patties about 1/2 inch thick each and a few inches wide. Perfect for dinnertime!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Potato Tuna Patties. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Olivia of Primavera Kitchen.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and lightly coat with cooking spray. Cook the patties until perfectly golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Serve.

Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

Whether you are tail-gating, hosting a party, or planning an easy weeknight dinner, you can never go wrong with Buffalo chicken. As much as I love a basket of crispy Buffalo wings, sometimes I’m looking for something a little lighter to satisfy my craving. This recipe for Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas by Tasty Kitchen member Phoebe caught my eye right away. All of the flavors of Buffalo chicken in a cheesy, crispy package? Count me in!

If you don’t have an outdoor grill—or if grilling season is already over where you are—no need to worry. These quesadillas can also be made in a grill pan on your stovetop.

Let’s get started.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

For this recipe, you will need chicken breasts, olive oil, celery, coconut oil, hot sauce, nonfat Greek yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, taco-sized tortillas, red onion, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Drizzle the chicken with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Grill until just cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Try not to overcook the chicken so you can avoid dry chicken breasts. Nobody likes dry meat.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

Once the chicken is cool enough to touch, chop it up.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

Add it to a large bowl, along with the celery and coconut oil. If you’re not a huge fan of the coconut flavor, go easy on the coconut oil or substitute olive oil instead.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

Add your favorite hot sauce. This is where things get interesting! Stir to coat the chicken. Taste and add more hot sauce if you like things fiery.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

In a medium bowl, make the sauce by whisking together the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice and a bit of salt.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

It’s time to put it all together. Arrange the tortillas on a work surface. Slather one side of each tortilla with a scant tablespoon of that awesome yogurt sauce. Cover the sauce with a thin layer of the chicken mixture.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

Top the chicken with red onions and cheddar cheese. You can never have enough cheese!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

Fold the tortillas in half. Grill them until crispy and browned, about 2 minutes per side. Rotate 90 degrees halfway through cooking each side to get those fancy crosshatch marks.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Phoebe of Feed Me Phoebe.

Cut each quesadilla in half and serve with the remaining yogurt sauce.

Thanks so much to Phoebe for this amazing recipe. Be sure to check out her site, Feed Me Phoebe. It is filled with healthy recipes that will leave you satisfied and craving more. Her Vegan Cauliflower Soup with Red Curry and Healthy Raw Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites are recipes that I will be trying very soon.

Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

When autumn hits and school starts, I start scrambling for cookie and snack ideas to surprise my kids with when they come home from school. These cookies taste like indulgent treats, but are actually packed with goodness. The kids will never suspect a thing!

These easy Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies by Tasty Kitchen member Norma caught my eye and I happened to have everything in my fridge and pantry to make them. If you haven’t used tahini before, think of it as peanut butter-like. Made from sesame seeds, it’s a thick spread that is used in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cooking. Tahini can be found in most grocery stores, usually near the peanut butter.

The tahini is just one part of these cookies. There’s crunch from chopped almonds, chewiness from oats and sweetness from a heavenly dip of chocolate.

Let’s get started.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

For this recipe, you will need oats, cinnamon, dark chocolate, almonds, pitted dates, tahini (sesame paste), honey, maple syrup, brewed coffee and chocolate chips.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

In a large bowl, stir together the oats and cinnamon.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

Chop the dark chocolate and add it to the bowl. The pieces don’t have to be perfectly even, so just chop away!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

Add the chopped almonds to the bowl and stir to combine. The almonds add the perfect bit of crunch to the cookies.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

Place the pitted dates in a small bowl and microwave for 25 seconds until soft. Smash the dates with the back of a fork.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

Stir in the tahini, honey, maple syrup and coffee.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

Transfer the tahini mixture to the bowl with the oats.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

Stir well until combined. If you can’t stir properly with a wooden spoon or spatula, get your hands in there and mix it up. A little trick I’ve learned is lightly coating your hands with cooking spray to stop the cookie dough from sticking to your fingers.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

Use a cookie scoop to form 1-inch balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

Use the bottom of a glass or measuring cup to flatten the cookies slightly.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

Bake the cookies until they are golden brown. That should take 15 to 20 minutes. Remove them from the oven and let them cool.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Chocolate-Dipped Tahini Cookies. Guest post by Dara Michalski of Cookin' Canuck, recipe submitted by TK member Norma of Allspice and Nutmeg.

If you want to dip the cookies in chocolate (and, really, why wouldn’t you?), melt the chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Be sure to do this on 50% heat, stirring every 15 to 20 seconds, so that the chocolate doesn’t separate or burn.

Dip half of each cookie in the melted chocolate. Serve or store in an airtight container, preferably in the fridge.

Thanks so much to Norma for this wonderful recipe! Be sure to check out her site, Allspice and Nutmeg. Her Summer Squash Tacos with Haloumi and Zaatar-Spiced Oven Fries look absolutely amazing.
