Brussels sprouts soup

When cleaning Brussels sprouts, about 20% of the product goes to waste. The outer leaves are often discoloured or damaged, yet they contain just as much flavour as the rest of the Brussels sprout. This waste-to-taste component is perfect for creating a delicious soup of Brussels sprouts leaves and mustard.
