Brussel Sprouts Warm Dish / Brüksel Lahanası Yemeği

Brussel sprouts were not a common vegetable in Turkey, until recent years. Now it is produced in Turkey and it is possible to find it in markets for moderate prices. The taste is not completely matching Turkish preferences so people have ended up creating new recipes. I’d like to share with you a recent recipe I’ve tried. The household enjoyed it very much. So I guess I have made a new addition to my list of healthy, vegetarian dishes list.

Kids generally object to Brussel sprouts because it is not fully cooked. I chose to use a pressure cooker. It cooks perfectly and quickly. The only difference with cooking in a normal pot is it takes less time and you need to add a smaller amount of water, as I have explained in the recipe below.

This dish can be served as a main dish or as a side dish, as you like. I hope you will try and enjoy.

  4. If mushrooms are big , cut to two or four after washing.
  5. Heat your pot slightly. Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Then add a chopped onion. Cook, while stirring occasionally until translucent.
  6. Then add 2-4 chopped garlic cloves, stir.
  7. Then add a tablespoon of red tomato paste, stir.
  8. Then add first the Brussel sprouts, and then the carrots, and then the potato and finally the mushroom. Mix between the new additions.
  9. Add the spices and mix again.
  10. Finally add warm water enough to cover the bottom if using a pressure cooker or up to the top if using a normal pot.
