"Savory...that's a swell word. And Basil and Betel. Capsicum. Curry. All great. But Relish, now, Relish with a capital R. No argument, that's the best."
-Ray Bradbury

The refrigerator light goes on...

This was inspired by a side dish that I had recently and it is absolutely delicious. The slight bitterness of the brussels sprouts is balanced by the sweet honey and savory tahini. Combine that with just a bit of spice and you have the perfect side dish.
