I made this as a side dish to Ethiopian Berbere Sweet Potato Stew. It would be a great compliment to any meal.



  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts, cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 cups carrots, cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 Tb lemon juice, fresh or reconstituted
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 Tb olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Mix all items together so that the vegetables are well coated.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until veggies are soft. I put mine in the pressure cooker steamer basket along with my stew. They came out a bit mushy, but still really tasty!
  3. Remove from heat and serve.
