      Hopefully she is taking a nice vacation somewhere.

      Alternative cooking approach for the Brussel Sprouts is to roast them in the oven at about 325 degrees.

      You will still need to cut and trim them as suggested but toss them in a mixing bowl with about 2 Tbs olive oil until evenly coated and place on lined baking sheet.

      Sprinkle the finely pressed or minced garlic over the top. Sprinkle on some sea salt and fresh ground pepper.

      Bake for about 40 minutes or until just tender.

      Enjoy!

      GARLIC ? only the last, canned chickpea recipe is not swimming in garlic!

      I wasn't raised a garlic-eater, and have never bothered to acquire the taste because my very best friend is almost deathly allergic to it. well, it puts her out of action for about a week if she accidentally ingests any. these days this is a problem for her because lots of her income-supplementing music gigs include a restaurant meal as part of the compensation -- and food you can't eat (because it's chock-full-O-garlic) really cuts into your "income."

        probably no fun to be dangerously allergic to any food!  The chickpea and garlic dish would not work without the garlic and I am not sure about the baba ghanouj.  I think the rest of the recipes would be fine without garlic.

        I am a volunteer reading tutor.  I always carry breath mints in case I have recently eaten a lot of garlic - don't want to knock the kids out!

        My Dad is a very good cook, and not overly fond of garlic either.
