This Thanksgiving is going to be somewhat different to normal. Unfortunately, with a global health crisis, it looks like getting the entire family together may not be possible, with travel restrictions keeping celebrations smaller this year.
Instead why not try spicing things up this holiday with this easy east meets west recipe for the perfect Thanksgiving side dish; a longtime favorite of Restaurateurs Raj & Bina Sharma celebrating 30 years of their award- wining restaurant Bombay Mahal in Maine.
Brussel sprouts are healthy, delicious, & extremely versatile with whatever you do with them. They are a nutrient packed leafy vegetable in season from fall throughout winter. They were named after the European city of Brussels, Belgium where they were popularized in the 16th century.
Here, they share their quick & easy recipe for it:
