Grilled Brussels Sprouts with Harissa Yogurt

Grilled Brussels Sprouts with Harissa Yogurt

If you don't like Brussels sprouts, you need to try these!
These Caramelized, grilled sprouts are complemented by the low-fat, Greek harissa yogurt - spicy, smoky, sweet, and nutty, all in one bite!  
Harissa is a complex blend of red peppers, spicy chilies, caraway seeds, smoked paprika, olive oil, vinegar, and garlic, to name a few. Harissa mixtures vary from region to region in the Middle East. It is said to have originated in Tunisia, the Northern edge of Africa, along the Mediterranean Sea. However, it's no doubt this adaptable paste traveled from the mecca of spice souks in the Middle East, finding its way into many other regional cuisines.
You can make your own, but I wanted this to be a quick and easy recipe with little effort and flavor.

Noteworthy: Brussels sprouts, a form of cabbage, are related to the mustard family. These little vegetables were cultivated in the 16th century in Belgium's capital, Brussels, and then began admiration in Europe and the United States during the 1800s. These little cabbages are thought to originate from a variation of the savoy cabbage.
