Recipe: Brussels sprouts with leek and cranberries
Vegetable recipes with herbs
February 05, 2012
I tried many times to grow brussel sprouts, and finally this year a plant survived the summer... but it produced only a few tiny buds.
It's okay, it was just an experiment. So I made a recipe with sprouts from the market and my homemade Black Chili Powder with Chilhuacle Negro and Chili de Onza that I growed last year. If you do not have anything like it, replace it with some paprika, preferably smoked.
Brussels sprouts with leek and cranberries
200g brussels sprouts
1/2 teaspoon powdered chiluacle or mulato (or smoked paprika)
1 tablespoon cider or rose wine
1 tablespoon cranberries
1/2 tablespoon honey
Slice the leeks and saute in olive oil for 10 minutes.
Add the pepper powder and brussel sprouts cut into thin slices.
Cook another 10 minutes, adding a few tablespoons of water if needed.
Add honey and cider and let it evaporate.
