Last week, before leaving for Seattle, I was doing some pantry cooking trying to make it to Friday without going to the grocery store. I found a basket of fresh brussel sprouts in the fridge and went online looking for recipes. I'm a new convert to the eating of brussel sprouts. A friend brought over dinner this past year and she had roasted brussel sprouts. I have long shunned brussel sprouts, something about the smell while cooking. I tried the roasted, soft, carmelized brussels and immediately wanted to make some myself. My first brussel sprout recipe I found on 101 Cookbooks by Heidi Swanson, Golden-Crusted Brussels Sprouts Recipe. I followed her recipe exactly and only improvised at the end when I threw in some frozen peas, chopped garlic, and buckwheat soba noodles. I added shavings of parmasean and manchego before serving. This was a perfect one-pot-dinner and made for a great cold lunch the following day.
