Easy ‘Cheesy’ Potatoes With Brussels Sprouts Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 5 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 40 mins
1.7 lbs potatoes, peeled and chopped
0.5 lbs Brussels sprouts
1 1/2 tbsp date syrup
1 tsp garlic powder
3 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed
2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1 medium white onion, chopped
1/2 cup plant based milk
1 small red chilli pepper, de-seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp mustard, ensure vegan and gluten-free
1/2 tsp sea salt, or to taste
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 cup green peas
2 cups spinach
1Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C (400 F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
2Start by tossing the potatoes and Brussels sprouts in a little bit of date (or maple) syrup and garlic powder. Transfer to the baking tray and roast in the preheated oven until the vegetables cooked through and crispy.
3Boil the butternut squash, carrots and onions until they are soft, which usually takes around 15 minutes.
4Once the vegetables for the cheesy sauce are cooked through, drain them but keep the water you cooked them in. Add the vegetables to a food processor or blender together with around a cup of the cooking water, plant based milk, red chilli peppers, garlic, mustard, salt, paprika, cumin, turmeric and cornstarch. Blend until smooth.
5When they are ready, transfer the potatoes and Brussels sprouts to a pan over a medium-high heat together with the sauce. Stir for a few minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
6Add green peas and spinach, stirring for 2-3 minutes more. Serve when the spinach wilts.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
