Vegan MoFo VIII, Day 25: Garlic Orange Brussels Sprouts (and a giveaway!)

Garlic Orange Brussells Sprouts from Fusion Food in the Vegan Kitchen (page 125)
Tonight you get two recipes (from Fusion Food in the Vegan Kitchen: 125 Comfort Food Classics, Reinvented with an Ethnic Twist!) for the price of one.  A wonderfully delicious recipe for brussells sprouts that makes a great side dish, plus a kick-ass recipe for Garlic Orange Sauce that tastes great on just about anything...tofu, seitan, brussells sprouts (duh) and works great as a dipping sauce for egg rolls and other finger foods.

In addition, I am also giving away a copy of this book to one lucky reader.  Open for anyone to enter, and I will ship internationally.  Just follow the prompts in the widget below.  And if you already have this book...would you mind doing me a solid and leaving a review over on Amazon?  I'd love ya for it.

Roasted with mushrooms garlic and salt, or lightly steamed(not to the booger point) This sounds really good and might even get mr picky to try it!!

I haven't eaten them too much, as my parents never fed them to me growing up - I guess they weren't fans. But I like it sliced up and sauteed with a whole bunch of garlic.
