Happy Wednesday! Does anyone else feel like Wednesdays just come around so quickly? So, today I am sharing a recipe that is an oldie but a goodie. A Kale and Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad. A salad of super food proportions filled with super foods. Well, kale and Brussels sprouts. It’s a tricky combination to pull off in my opinion since both foods are so bitter in taste. However, dressing them in a simple lemon vinaigrette is delicious. I love the simplicity of this salad. But first, I love the idea of shredding Brussels sprouts raw and using them in everything from salads to tacos to burger garnishes. It’s easy to shred them if you have a shredder attachment for the food processor. So, first the recipe, then on to What I Ate Wednesday and how I used the sprouts again.

And now, for What I Ate Wednesday:
I jumped on the smoothie bowl bandwagon. I received some local honey as a gift and I am using it in at least one meal a day for a week. Today Mr. Beet and I made smoothie bowls.
We made the smoothies with bananas, frozen strawberries, blueberries, peaches, coconut milk and flaxseed oil. Then topped it with more strawberries, blueberries, maple granola, shredded coconut and honey. Now I understand why everyone makes these so often.
I made Curried Lentil Poutine for a recipe contest I entered for the Idaho Potato Commission and the Food and Wine Conference. I have never entered a recipe contest before so we will see what happens. I think the recipe itself turned out great, but I am not happy with the pictures. Oh well. I am asking for a camera for my birthday, Christmas, Flag Day etc. I would love some advice on what kind to get!
I feel like since I spent most of the afternoon working on the Poutine recipe I just wanted a very simple and low key dinner. We made tacos with refried beans, corn, tomatoes, cheese and the leftover shredded Brussels sprouts.
OK- and now I have a huge favor to ask. I have also been entered in a Game Day recipe contest and it has been opened to voting from everyone. I would love if you would click on this link –> Big Game Day Recipes Reader’s Choice Award and scroll down to my Game Day Mocktails (5th row down in the middle last I checked), then click on the heart below my picture (and you can click the heart up three or four times to register multiple votes). I realize I have a low chance of winning here but I just don’t want to look like a loser with a low number of votes, you know? I would love you FOREVER!!!! (You do not need to sign up for anything, enter your email, tell them your name…nothing. Just click on the heart below my pic to vote)
