Welcome to the first of many posts as part of  Spicy, Sexy, Saucy Bites – a collection of recipes brought to you by 20  incredible bloggers.  Triple S is the brainchild of Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla , the full history of which can be found here.  I know Camilla from Secret Recipe Club so when I saw she was looking for a few more bloggers to join in I sent my “application” right over and become lucky number 20!  The recipes featured over the next few days will also feature goodies from some of the awesome sponsors involved with this project, a few of which have already been featured here!

Plus as a bonus one lucky reader will get a box of goodies from these awesome companies so that they can make their own TripleS recipes!  More details can be found at the bottom of this post.

I knew as soon as I saw this challenge that I wanted to focus on a few of Joe’s favorite foods – after all I can’t really do a salute to Valentine’s Day without thinking about my favorite Valentine.  These saucy sprouts were the first thing on my must make list – and they are a rather versatile side dish that would go great with some edamame nuggets, breaded tofu, or even some sort of meat for the carnivores out there.

Cherry Chipotle Brussel Sprouts

Serves 4-5, as a side

Ingredients

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1.5 lbs Brussel Sprouts, halved

2 tbsp Cherry Chipotle Not Ketchup

1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium high heat in a large saute pan. Add the brussel sprouts and cook for 12-15 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning while allowing the leaves to brown up.
  2. Add the cherry chipotle sauce, and bring heat to medium-low. Stir well and continue cooking for 7 minutes, or until the sauce starts to caramelize.
  3. Remove from heat and serve! Top with blue cheese crumbles if desired and enjoy!

I’m a huge fan of the Cherry Chipotle Not Ketchup, I was a bit nervous at first since real ketchup is one of my least favorite things but it’s fantastic.  The slight spice of the chipotles is perfectly matched by the tartness of the cherries – total awesomeness.  I’ve got at one more treat featuring this sauce coming later the week, using it in a slightly more traditional manner.  As a bonus my Not Ketchup is also vegan and gluten free so perfect for a twist on bbq tofu or chicken.

Note: While I did receive the Cherry Chipotle Not Ketchup for free as part of participating in TripleSBites, I was not required to use or mention the product outside of acknowledging receipt of the product.  All opinions are totally my own.   Now for the giveaway!!!

  1. My favorite romantic thing to make? Goat cheese croquettes from America’s Test Kitchen, baked and nested on fancy greens with a light orange-thyme dressing. My husband’s favorite romantic thing to make is potato leek soup… he made it for one of our first ‘dates’ in high school and 20 years later, still does.

    1. Oh, spiced fig! That’s the other one I want to try but haven’t found a local vendor yet 🙁 Need to suck it up and go to Whole Foods this weekend

  2. I went with the smokey date for the last event, but couldn’t wait to try the cherry chipotle this go around. I haven’t made that dish yet, but I’m dying to. Your sprouts looks fabulous. I’m addicted to brussels sprouts lately. They’re just SO GOOD!

    1. They are amazing, though it took me til I was 25 to realize it! B. Sprouts and beets are still “new to me” which is probably why my blog is packed full of recipes featuring them 🙂
