It's hard to make a Happy Birthday treat when the celebratory person is on a rigid diet. Yes, there are some sugar free and low fat options, but I chose a different route. My husband's love for brussels sprouts is almost an obsession. If offered a choice between any dessert or a big bowl of steamed brussels sprouts, he would gladly choose the latter. So, when I saw this soup recipe in Sunset magazine, I knew this would be perfect for him. It also contains sundried tomato turkey sausage, potatoes, and caraway seeds. And that's pretty much it. The soup had a slightly sweet flavor, from the caraway seeds and the brussels spouts. This certainly isn't a soup for people who hate these little cabbages, (as I like to think of them), but it was a huge hit with my husband.
