By • October 29, 2009 • 2 Comments

Author Notes: Brussel sprouts and shitake mushroom pair up with garlic and soy sauce to create a rich and addictive flavor combination that promises to win over the most adamant crucifer-hater. Finished with a drizzle of truffle oil, the rustic brussel sprout is elevated to an elegant side dish.TasteFood

Made this last night for dinner, with a minor tweak -- substituting freshly grated parmesan cheese for the soy sauce and truffle oil. Just lovely, this recipe is a keeper.
