No need to balk at Brussel sprouts. Move past your prejudice of this overly mistreated vegetable. Rid your mind of the association with soggy overcooked mushy leaves. Change your flavor paradigm.
Roasting tinges the delicate green of this tiny robust cabbage with golden brilliance. The addition of bell peppers, shallots, and garlic bolster the freshness of this savory side dish.
We also took advantage of some new spicy peppers to add an extra pop of flavor.

A Hefeweizen acts as the perfect pint to quell the zesty pop of the peppers and Chipotle Gouda. We filled a growler at Engine 15 and were set for the night! #drinklocal
