Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. I mean, really. This is my attempt at How Sweet Eats recipe that I've tried to make vegetarian (without the bacon) and let's just say it's so good that I haven't even cleaned up the kitchen yet I am so excited to post it!
It took me about 10 minutes to make from start to finish. Buy brussel sprouts. Slice them into messy chunks, put them in a skillet with a couple tablespoons olive oil, a little scoop of vegan butter (or regular, whatever), and about two tablespoons of maple syrup. Toss in the medium heated skillet until they are just bright green and slightly tender (4-5 minutes). Remove from heat, add a bit of blue cheese, salt and pepper. Then slice a pear, add that and more cheese and you are literally done. It's gorgeous, simple, filling and something totally different in the salad department.
Seriously, go make this. Right now. Peace.
