This is soooo good. I replaced 1/2 the brussels sprouts with red potatoes. My whole family loved it.
The first time I made this recipe I goofed and did not do it justice (I did not puree the sauce properly and the result was an unattractive lumpy sauce over the sprouts). It is a bit of a workup but well worth it. Be sure that you puree the onion squash etc to a smooth consistency and add enough of the left over broth so the sauce is like a medium heavy gravy. The combination of flavors and spices is wonderful and compliments the brussels sprouts Thanks Rita great recipe
