Every Monday and Wednesday, we'll announce a new Wildcard winner: a recipe that may not have been entered in (or won) a contest, but a recipe that we've tested and loved.

Today: A simple, elegant side dish, with ingredients you probably have on hand already.  

This post is brought to you by our friends at Noritake. Noritake’s Colorvara Chocolate is featured below.

Brussels sprouts from Food52 

WHO: Cassie Jones is an American photographer living in the Netherlands.

WHAT: Nutty, caramelized, special-occasion brussels sprouts -- in 15 minutes.

HOW: Infuse your olive oil with garlic, steam your brussels sprouts with white wine, then, when the liquid cooks off, let them caramelize. Garnish with Parmesan.

WHY WE LOVE IT: With this recipe, you get the best that Brussels sprouts have to offer: cut sides eager to be browned, with insides that get soft and creamy. The white wine adds a fruity acidity, and the pine nuts and thyme make it special, elegant.

I cook dinner for my friends a couple of times a month and they "expect" my Brussels sprouts. I'll have to try these.
