Posted on 6th of May, 2012 by Lévana

Cholent-Soup

Mediterranean flavors at their best. A frequent Passover treat at my table. I find brussels sprouts somewhat underrated and underused in our country.  They are much more exciting than they sound, and much less innocent than they look; and their pungent bite provides a nice counterpoint to the mildness of...
