3 cups of Brussels sprouts

Cut a shallow X into each stem.

Pull away any loose or yellowed leaves.

Bring a large pot of salted (optional) water to a rolling boil over high heat.

Add the Brussels sprouts and cook until the tip of a paring knife goes into the stem end of the largest Brussels sprout easily, 10 to 12 minutes.

Drain in a colander and reserve.

Return the pot to HIGH heat.

Add the vegetable broth and the mustard, whisking until the mustard is evenly blended into the broth.
