So I made it today. It was very good!

I used what I already had at home: cooked the potatoes with a couple of carrots too; fried leek instead of onions and used brussel sprout tops instead of cabbage. And some butter of course....
I cooked some salmon to go with it.

It came out really good, and I'm definitely gonna make it again!

Thanks for the idea, Katherine!

I'm glad you liked it! Your version sounds good.

I don't think I've ever seen those. They must cut them off the Brussels sprouts here before selling them.

I've never seen them in the stores here either.

I get them from the organic CSA farm I'm a member of.

It provides me with all kinds of veggies plus youghurt and meat.

I did that a couple of times. Both times the farmers had bad years, so their output wasn't great. Also, I felt too much pressure to figure out how to use the vegetables while they were still good. So I decided to stick with farmers' markets.

At one of the CSA farms, though, the people raised and sold free-range chickens and fresh eggs. They were a long drive out into the country, though beautiful on a nice day. I would stock up on about six of the chickens. (I mean, at that point the chickens were, er, ready to eat, not still strutting around.)

These Brussels sprouts are said to have more nutrients that fight cancer than CBD oil!

Yeah, sometimes I very optimistically order veggies and then a week later find that I haven't used all of them.

But I like the idea and the community of the CSA farm.

Are they some special variety of brussel sprouts?
