Wishing these were my Brussels sprouts. Instead they came from one of those long stalks of sprouts you can buy this time of year. These were delicious, cut in cross-wise slices and quickly cooked in olive oil with garlic. Spritzed with balsamic vinegar and pepper flakes, they stole the show at dinner.
Check out Specialty Produce where there’s lots of cool info like which San Diego area restaurants are purchasing Brussels sprouts (169 restaurants on the list) and links to great recipes like this one.
