The new year has begun and we wish all our readers a happy new year! Hopefully you have survived the turn of the year as good as we did

On our first shopping trip in the supermarkted this year we have discovered Flower Sprouts. It’s a type of brussels sprouts, but they were modified and refined more and more during 15 years within a special breed. The result is really amazing! Also we fell in love with the delicious taste and enjoy to cook and eat them. They taste better then brussels sprouts (also it’s not so bitter ) and they are prepared really fast. This vegetable has also the double amount of vitamin C than normal brussel sprouts.

Flower Sprouts with Baked Potatoes and Sauce with Dried Tomatoes

We created the sauce for our recipe spontaneously and it tastes very fine. Even though I’m breeding my own fresh herbs all over the year at home, I like to use dried herbs. The taste of fresh herbs is better, of course, but compared to the dried quite complicated to prepare – if you buy dried herbs, not if you have to dry them before I love ready to use mixed herbs like the classics: Salad herbs, herbes de Provence and italian herbs.
