Yes, you read correctly, the title says 'Inspired by Sprouts' and by sprouts I mean 'Brussels Sprouts'. I cannot honestly remember a time when I did not like them. I can even eat them slightly boiled with nothing but a little white pepper. Now, that is not the case for a lot of people, I understand, so when I come across a recipe for them , especially one that I can share with others I immediately try it out. Yesterday, I was browsing through the 'Huffington Post' on line and came across this recipe for grilled brussels sprouts and they were quite simply delicious.

They were par boiled for a grand total of five minutes, drained, then tossed in onion powder, garlic powder, fresh lemon zest, kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.

I grilled beef on a charcoal grill, using a marinade that I also found on the same site, that was quite simply delicious. When the meat was cooked, while standing , I grilled the sprouts for four minutes turning for another four minutes, returned them to the bowl, tossed again in remaining oil and added more fresh lemon zest and freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Food52 is the name of this new and exciting site for foodies, chefs, cooks and generally food lovers. I also love their new service called 'In a Pickle'
