If you really love spinach dip, you can even dip your spinach dip rolls in any extra filling. Now that’s what we’re talking about.

While roasted Brussels sprouts are a delicacy of their own, the green veggies are stir-fried in this Brussels Sprouts Stir Fry recipe by Joyce Gan, making the process much quicker and easier. Nothing too fancy is required to stir-fry them, just a bit of salt and pepper and a zing of lemon if you desire. Top with some coconut flakes and dried cranberries for a lovely flavor contrast.
