• 12 large Brussels sprouts
• 2 ounces goat cheese (plain or with added herbs)
• 3 tablespoons pomegranate arils
• Optional: one teaspoon of honey or agave (for extra sweetness if preferred)
Bring a small pan of water to a boil. Remove 2 outer leaves from each of the Brussels sprouts and cut off excess stem end, forming a round cup shape. Blanch for one minute in boiling water and then remove and place in a bowl of cold water.
Fill each leaf with a little goat cheese and a few pomegranate arils. (Add a drop or two of honey or agave, if desired.)
