Brussels Sprout and Mushroom Ragout with herb dumplings

Added by: on Nov 2nd, 2010
Simultaneously homey and special, this ragout has proven to more than one person that Brussels sprouts are good. While the recipe is made easier by using sliced onions, it becomes more special if you include pearl onions, cipollini, or whole shallots, peeled first and cooked in place of the yellow .. more >

Make the mushroom stock. Once it’s simmering, bring a pot of water to a boil for the Brussels sprouts.


Heat the oil in a wide nonstick skillet. Add the onions and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until aromatic and nicely colored, about 12 minutes. Meanwhile, slice the mushrooms and chop the herbs and garlic.


Once the onions are a rich color, raise the heat to high and add the mushrooms, herbs, and garlic to the pan. Squeeze the lemon juice over the mushrooms and saute until the mushrooms are browned in places, 5 to 7 minutes, then reduce the heat to low.


Add salt to the boiling water, then the Brussels sprouts along with any loose leaves. Boil until nearly tender, 4 to 6 minutes, depending on size. Check by piercing them with a paring knife. Drain, then add them to the pan and pour in the mushroom stock. At this point you can turn off the heat and let the vegetables stand until you’re ready to make the dumplings.


For the dumplings, mix the flour with the baking powder and salt. Pour in the milk, herbs, and egg and stir quickly together with a fork. Add the dumpling batter by spoonfuls to the ragout, making 12 small dumplings in all. You'll have extra batter, but don’t use it or the dish will be too bready. (It’s hard to make the batter in smaller amounts.) Cover the pan with tented foil, bring everything to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes. Serve in soup plates, with 3 dumplings in each bowl.

Cooks' note:
Start with the stock, whether bouillon or made from scratch. While it’s simmering, start the onions and mushrooms, blanch the sprouts, and get the dumpling ingredients together. Once the vegetables and stock are combined, make the dumpling batter. Drop the batter into the pot, and it's a matter of 10 minutes before the dish is ready. The ragout is vegan, but not the dumplings. Wild rice, however, would be delicious in their place.

This is seriously one of the easiest side dishes I’ve ever made. If you like brussels sprouts then you’ll love the extra flavor that roasting brings out in them. If you don’t like brussels sprouts then maybe it’s time to try them. C’mon, I dare you! These pint-sized cabbages are loaded with Vitamins A and C and fiber. I like to buy them still on the stalk and then cut them off right ..

Brussels sprout looks like a small cabbage, but has a milder flavor.This vegetable has a number of vitamins, minerals, and fibers. In the following recipe, we have made Brussels sprouts gratin with mushrooms and rice. Melted cheese Gouda on top of the gratin not only increased the nutritional value for vitamin K, but also flavored vegetables.
