Recipe: Brussels Sprouts with Leek and Cranberries

Vegetable recipes with herbs
February 05, 2012

Brussels SproutsI 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.
