Recipe by Rachel Marie
I am one of the few people I know that loves Brussels Sprouts, but hopefully this recipe will change some peoples idea of this little veggie! The recipe originally called for slices of peppered bacon, but since I'm a Vegetarian I substituted a no-meat version of bacon. I think it turned out great! (the chicken broth can also be substituted for a veggie or poultry flavored broth, for strict Vegetarians) From BH&G.
- 4 slices vegetarian bacon
- 2 lbs Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved through stem end
- 3⁄4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 3⁄4 cup whipping cream
- cracked black pepper
