Paleo Chorizo Brussels Sprout Slaw (and other slaws)
To kick things off, here's a favorite recipe of mine. I've made variations of this probably four times in the last two months. It's so good... and so easy, like your mom.
Chorizo Brussels Sprout Slaw
- Wellshire All-Natural Smoked Chorizo (Whole Foods), cut into small pieces
- Pre-slawed Brussels Sprouts (Trader Joe's)
- Sliced almonds, toasted if you want
- Raisins (optional)
- Crushed red pepper
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Salt, Pepper
- Lemon juice
Brown your chorizo. Everything else cooks in the chorizo oil, so you might not have to add any extra olive oil unless your ratio of sausage to sprouts requires it. Then add sprouts and a dusting of spices, sauté while stirring occasionally until the sprouts start to caramelize a little bit on the edges. It brings out the flavor so hard. Cut up the avocado while that’s going on. Then add lemon juice. Keep the heat on for another minute or so, put it in a bowl and sprinkle some (maybe toasted) almonds on top. Then eat that fantastic pile of food.
Below is another slaw that I made in a similar way, but with slawed broccoli instead. Not the best picture, but this one was pretty good hot or cold as well!
