Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Quinoa, Brown Rice and Wine

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Quinoa by 2sistersrecipes.com

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Quinoa, Brown Rice and Wine.  Brussels spouts are gently sautéed with quinoa, brown rice and spiced with turmeric, cayenne pepper and garlic powder, then smothered with white wine until all the flavors are infused together. There are three words that describes this dish- off the Hook!

After Thanksgiving, we are going back to cooking healthier dishes that are simple and satisfying like this one. You’ll love this recipe.

Sometimes we just don’t have the time to make gourmet dinners from scratch, so sometimes, you need to cheat a little, which is how I came to make my brussels sprouts with quinoa and brown rice.

There is this wonderful company called Seeds of Change that makes pre-cooked quinoa and brown rice in a bag that I found at Costco.  It’s organic and already flavored, but I like to add my own surprises to spice it up a bit.

 

 

How to Make Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Quinoa, Brown Rice and Wine: 

First, chop the onion and sauté in olive oil until golden brown.  I like to cook my onions a bit longer to give it a lovely smokey flavor.

 

 

While onions are sauteing, begin cleaning brussels sprouts by running them under water, trimming off the end and peeling off leaves if they are brown.

Cut brussels sprouts in half and add to boiling water.  You need to only blanch the brussels sprouts for about 2 minutes.

 

 

 

Once the onions are done cooking you may add the brussels sprouts by carefully draining them out of the boiling water and adding them to the skillet.  Then I added 2 packages of quinoa brown rice mixture, some spices and white wine.

This dish literally took me no more than 15 minutes to make; this could not get any easier.  It was so delicious and very filling, dinner becomes a snap for busy weeknight and for meatless Mondays!

Another great way to enjoy brussels sprouts; you’ll have to try this.

    I cannot tell you how excited I am about this recipe! It sounds fantastic! Thank you so much! I've never heard of the rice quinoa mixture but will be looking for it. It appears to be partially cooked? Thanks again!

      Hi Tricia! The quinoa and brown rice mixture is fully cooked and only really needs to be reheated for a few minutes. It really is a quick dish – enjoy!

      I made this for dinner last night and it was wonderful! I used to make a rice dish with wine so it reminded me of that. The only change was that I oven roasted the Brussels sprouts instead of boiling. I roasted them until caramelized then added to the rice and onion mixture. Very good and very fast! Thanks so much!
