Ode to Brussels Sprouts (a la the Motha-land)

We are finally moved in to our beautiful San Francisco apartment. We are settled and trying to get our lives back in order after the weddings, Europe, and the cross-country move. Ah!

Road trip + Europe trip = Carb, fast food, and cheese overload. I am therefore trying (albeit not so successfully) to combat the post-trip flabiness by eating lots o' veggies. My numero uno fave veggie of the moment is Brussels Sprouts.

My favorite way to prepare them is inspired by none other than the mother-land, India. This obviously includes lots of spices, especially turmeric.

Here's how I do it:

What you need:

One large onion
Three (ish) cloves of garlic
One pound brussels sprouts
Coriander Powder

Sauté one large, diced onion with a few cloves of garlic.
When the onion turns brown, throw in one pound of brussels sprouts.
Throw in a dash (about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of each) of turmeric, coriander powder, cumin, and salt.
Sprinkle in a few drops of water, cover, and let simmer.

About ten minutes later--walla!--perfect, spicy, warm brussels. YUM!
