So this is where Brussel Sprouts come from...
I love going to our local Underwood Farms vegetable stand. Everything is so fresh, and you can really taste the difference, so for a recent potluck, I decided to make the freshest of salads with Romaine lettuce, red, yellow & orange bell peppers, white radishes, and long onions. And, oh, yes, let's not forget the heirloom tomatoes!!
But a separate stock of produce caught my eye and I had to have it...a long stock filled with brussel sprouts!! I love brussel sprouts anyway, but I just couldn't wait to taste these fresh from the stock!! And they didn't disappoint!! The stock had tons...at least two baskets that you would normally buy in the supermarket. I steamed these for about 20 minutes and then sprinkled with a bit of nutmeg and garlic powder...mmmmmmm!
