Brussels Sprouts Parmyère
November 12th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
"Parmyère" is a newfangled Brussels Sprouts preparation that makes even the staunchest sprout naysayers purr like kittens. Really. We start by shredding sprouts, making them tender and approachable. Then we cook them with leeks, heavy cream and Swiss Gruyère & Parmesan cheeses, showcasing the rarely experienced cruciferous softness and sweetness. Enhanced by fresh lemon juice and a touch of nutmeg, the dish is rich, dynamic and emits a nutty, warming aroma. Accompanied by a separate, crispy, fried onion-sourdough breadcrumb topping -- which is added after the dish is heated for savory, crunchy contrast -- Brussels Sprouts Parmyère is one-of-a-kind, especially at $3.99 for each 14 ounce container.
