The title of this post speaks for itself. There aren’t many ingredients involved to make this spectacular – and I do mean spectacular – vegetable dish. For those foodies who were at the 1st Annual Foodbuzz Blogger Festival back in November, you all know what I’m talking about. We had this dish at the Foodbuzz dinner and everyone was blown away by the Asian flavors that permeated through these little brussels sprouts. I’ve been meaning to try this recipe created by Chef Dennis Lee of Namu Restaurant in San Francisco. Although we didn’t have all the ingredients, we still made the most of what we had and it still turned out delicious!
Here is the link to the Foodbuzz page where we used the Chef Lee’s recipe: Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Ponzu Fried Garlic, Guanciale, and Bonito Flakes. (Keep in mind we didn’t use all of the ingredients, and we didn’t roast the sprouts).
Speaking of the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival, we actually met our blogger friends, Kim and Hong from
Ravenous Couple in November. They have an amazing food blog that mainly encompasses Vietnamese cooking. They recently attempted to bake, and lo and behold, Kim’s recipe for Jalapeno Poppers in a Blanket is a finalist in the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry contest! We would appreciate your support for our friend’s recipe by voting for her daily in the Appetizer category up until February 1st.
