Loving ‘Crazy sexy kitchen’

Have I mentioned how much I am loving ‘Crazy sexy kitchen’ with Kris Carr and Chef Chad Sarno?  This awe-inspiring recipe book landed in my kitchen four months ago, personally signed by Kris with these exact words: Peace and veggies, Love Kris. My journey has since been exactly that! Seasoned with Kris’ wisdom, inspiration and humor, this amazing book has indeed ignited what Kris calls ‘a mouthwatering revolution’ for me too!
Today, I gave the Roasted Brussels Sprouts a shot. I know that many of you may be pouting at the thought of this fairly bitter veggie, but let me tell you that it was absolutely lip smacking!
Here’s the recipe with some minor adaptations to suit my taste.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios and Cipollini Onions (Crazy sexy kitchen)
3 cups Brussels sprouts (cleaned)
1 cup cipollini onions or shallots, peeled and chopped
¼ cup raw pistachios, chopped
½ tsp herbal salt
Pinch of dry parsley
2 tbsp ghee butter (or olive oil)
1/5 cup water
Preheat oven to 375ᴼF. In a bowl, combine Brussels sprouts, onions and pistachios and toss remaining ingredients in. Roast mixture on sheet pan for 15 minutes, shaking pan about halfway through to ensure even cooking. Serve hot.
Thank you Kris!




About Mahi S

I was born on the island of Cyprus in 1971. For years, I lived the life of a nomad: I grew up in the Arab Gulf, finished high school in Cyprus, then went to the U.S. for five remarkable, life-changing years of study and work in public relations. With every change of home, I was confronted with the challenge of separation and the issue of identity, but ultimately the rewarding experience of interacting with people of different cultures has informed my life ever since. It inspired me to create an ideal setting wherever I found myself, to live meaningfully and use passion as the main ingredient in my life. I run to keep myself motivated and to fire the kind of creative thinking that keeps me balanced and content. But it’s also an ongoing challenge: since 1999, I have completed 17 half-marathons, which I try to run in a different city every time. In fact, running and travel are the two pillars of my life philosophy: “Travel is fascinating, whether it’s about a series of mesmerizing destinations or a journey within myself”. “Running keeps me sane, motivated and focused!” Right now, I am focusing on promoting my new book, ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ an e-cookbook with quick, easy and delicious recipes (and anecdotes) from dearest friends around the world. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AYXN500. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!
