“Halved Brussels sprouts are quickly stir fried with garlic, then tossed in Umami sauce which makes a nice, thick sauce. Yum. The computer would not let me say umami sauce in the ingredients, so I put soy sauce, but use umami sauce! From Colorado Homes, taken from True Food: Seasonal, Sustainable, Simple, Pure by Andrew Weil MD, Sam Fox and Micheal Stebner.”
