I was looking for something to use up some left over water chestnuts and ran across this, and I love brussels sprouts so I had to try it. I did like it, ate every bite, but something was just a little off for me. The sprouts were great and the chestnuts tasted good too, but I'm not sure I really liked the two mixed together. The only change I made was to add a little salt to taster. I was between 3 and 4 stars on this, opted for 4 since I generally loved the flavor, just not the mix of the chestnuts and sprouts.
