Recipe Review: Brussels Sprouts and Sausage Soup
I'll just start be mentioning that I didn't have any caraway seeds, one of the two spices used in this recipe, so the soup I wound up making was lacking one of the base flavors of the recipe. However, I'm pretty sure that R would have liked the recipe less had I included anise-flavored seeds in the broth). In any case, Brussels Sprouts and Sausage Soup, with red and black pepper substituting for the caraway seeds, was surprisingly nice. At first it tastes a little bland, but it grows on you (I had seconds). Plus, if you use a bag of frozen Brussels sprouts, it's really easy to make. A nice combination.
