Brussel sprouts must be the most polarising item of food on the Christmas dinner table!!
They are just little cabbages people!! Unfortunately sprouts are most often boiled to within an inch of their lives and are then tasteless and mostly just soggy….I can see why people don’t like them.
So that’s why I’ve rounded up my pick of the best sprout recipes I have with a few suggestions from some of my readers too!
Trust me on this, brussel sprouts can be amazing so give these recipes a go and be mesmerised by how could they can taste.
Ginger and sesame are my two favourite Asian flavours that infuse sprouts into very tasty veg. Parboiling brussel sprouts is the secret to prevent soggy sprouts on your plate too.
- Shredded brussel sprouts with smoky bacon lardons and topped with parmesan.
- Add maple syrup to the brussel sprouts before roasting in the oven.
- Shredded brussel sprouts with garlic, chilli and soy sauce.
Mix some cider and honey together before adding to a mix of Winter veg – use carrots, parsnips, celeriac, turnip or squash alongside your sprouts. Make sure to leave out the bacon lardons if you are having any veggies or vegans to your table.
Sure there is a little bit of chopping involved in this salad recipe but the results are so tasty. By thinly slicing your sprouts, the marinade gets soaked up really easy and literally softens and almost cooks the sprouts a little.
Fill your plate with tons of Winter veg colour with this recipe. Roasting sprouts is the easiest and my favourite way to cook them. I also discovered the easiest way to cook grains in the this recipe. Honestly I don’t lie here, this will change how you cook grains forever!!
