Brussel Sprouts

It's the world's smallest cabbage: the Brussel Sprout. Yet we still struggle to make them appertising and flavoursome.

Here are some quick and easy ways to make brussel sprouts the tasty dish they deserve to be.

500 g brussel sprouts, trimmed and cleaned
150 g lardon pieces
Use either 175 g of freshly cooked or tinned chestnuts, cut in halves or quarters
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper

Boil sprouts for about 12 minutes and drain.
Melt butter and fry the lardon pieces gently for a few minutes.
Add sprouts and chestnuts.
Cook until sprouts are beginning to brown.

Brussel Sprouts and Onions

500 g brussel sprouts
1 chopped onion
1 clove garlic
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Fry onions and garlic in olive oil until soft.
Divide the leaves of the sprouts and add to the onions.
Season with salt and pepper and pan fry until cooked.

Brussel Sprouts and Peanut Butter

500 g brussel sprouts

Teaspoon peanut butter
