Hope you’re all having a wonderful day. Sorry for not being so active on the blog lately, but I finally moved to Victoria, BC and have been running around making sure I have everything ready before my classes start next week.
There’s so much to see around here, way too much I would say! For a person who loves outdoor activities, I just can’t get enough! From long trails around the island, to beautiful parks, beaches and hiking spots that I just want to to them all at once.
Besides having so many incredible adventures around the city, I’ve been trying some awesome vegan restaurants and been at really cool local food stores around where I’ve found amazing things.
A few days ago I made this simple yet delicious side dish to go with my dinner. It is so easy to prepare but so yummy and satisfying. I think this is a most-try recipe, not just because it tastes really good, but because it is so easy to make that you should really try it!
Since spring is starting to bloom here in Victoria, my garden is giving me some love back and it is packed with all sorts of herbs that are ready to be used. So, inspired by some fresh rosemary I had just picked this recipe came to exist!
Brussel Sprouts with Tahini-Lemon Dressing & Fresh Rosemary
1 cup fresh Brussel sprouts, steamed
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp fresh rosemary
2 Tbsp Tahini
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Water as needed
Sea salt to taste
Start by steaming your Brussel sprouts (no salt needed, optional). Meanwhile, prepare your dressing by mixing tahini, lemon juice and sea salt in a small bowl. I like to do it by hand, using a fork. Start adding water slowly, until you have a nice and smooth consistency, similar to a Caesar salad dressing.
Transfer steamed Brussel sprouts to a serving bowl and top with tahini dressing, hemp seeds and rosemary leaves. Enjoy!!
