What a nice change of pace! The combination of ingredients are spot on, elevating these brussels sprouts to flavor town. I followed all as directed and used homegrown cilantro where the stems were also used (there's lots of flavor in the stems, so why throw it out). Tasted great. Thanks, Teresa, for sharing!
