Brussels Sprout and Mushroom Ragout with herb dumplings


by: Cali Chef

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 onions. And although you may be tempted to use commercial gnocchi, dumplings are insanely easy to make and involve about 1 minute of your time, so do give them a try. Italian wild mushroom bouillon (Star brand) makes a passable alternative—or addition—to your own stock, but it can be salty, so be sure you taste it and dilute it if need be. I would start this meal with something raw and fresh, such as a grated carrot salad with mint and black olives or a more substantial salad of bulgur and green lentils with chickpeas, with a walnut vinaigrette. A leaf salad might follow, along with a dessert, such as a caramelized apple tart with cinnamon custard. For wine, try a New World Chardonnay with rich fruit and a little oak, from Santa Barbara, such as Sanford or Au Bon Climat.
