3 Ways With Brussels Sprouts This Christmas
Is there any food more divisive than Brussels sprouts? Childhood, or maybe even adulthood, memories of overcooked mushy greens are probably responsible for a lot of these opinions. Cooked well, however, the humble sprout is an absolute delight and lends itself perfectly to a whole host of flavours, cooking methods and dishes. Here are three ideas for cooking Brussels sprouts this Christmas:
- Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts:
Roast with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and seasoning for thirty minutes to really bring out the hidden sweetness of the mini cabbages. For an added bit of colour and flavour, throw in some chopped red onion too.
2. Pan-fried Brussles Sprouts with Tofu Bacon:
Sprouts and bacon recipes are everywhere, so why not create your own vegan version by frying together par-boiled sprouts and tiny cubes of marinated tofu. Coat the tofu in cornflour before frying to make them extra-crispy.
3. Curried Quinoa Brussels Sprouts:
You can make this one pot wonder by frying the sprouts with onions, garlic and spices before adding in vegetable stock and uncooked quinoa. Simmer for around twenty minutes until the quinoa and sprouts are cooked through to create an unexpected side dish or main.
