I was preparing a somewhat last minute lunch for our friend Marcos and I needed a vegetable side dish. I stared at the brussels sprouts for some time, not knowing what to do with them. I looked around at the stuff in my kitchen, glancing past the pile of stuff that is always strewn across our counters. I was about to resort to plain sprouts with garlic and olive oil, when I closed my eyes and I literally envisioned this dish! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. It’s definitely something I’d serve at a fancy dinner.
