Local Shawarma-Spiced Brussels Sprouts - Meal Kit delivery in Long Island from Shuka

  • These Brussels sprouts pack an incredible flavor punch.  A special shwarma seasoning, delicious white sauce, an herby zhoug, and a splash of citrus provide the perfect topping for peak season Brussels. Please note that this dish includes all the ingredients and sauces you will need for the recipe, but there is a limited amount prep work that needs to be completed such as halving the Brussels sprouts before roasting.
  • This dish was a special holiday collaboration between Shuka and OurHarvest.
