Ooh! So, can you post this Portugese tyle Brussels sprout leaves soup in the recipe's forum?
I wonder how it would turn out made with leaves from my purple Brussels sprouts (Falstaff)?
i don't think there would be much difference between the green or the purple.. i'll have to try the purple next year.
just customize it the way you want, i don't add beans in mine - but my mom does in hers.. i also add chicken pieces, my mom doesn't always add it - it's all about customization.
also, you can make just chicken noodle soup and just add the leaves.. just cook the leaves the last 10 - 15 min (until leaves are dark and tender).. i think they'll go good in just about any soup.
