I know that many love Brussels Sprouts but they are also a vegetable that has a long reputation of being detested by some and are the classic vegetable that no one wants to try, especially children. Perhaps it is the odour that follows them to the table that is off-putting.
Here is my Brussels Sprouts dish that turns up the flavour dial and takes minimal time from Fridge to Finish.
- 2 Bacon Rashers - chopped (substitue 1/4 cup chopped ham)
- 450gm Brussels Sprouts - washed and quartered
- 1 large carrot or 2 small. - washed, quartered and chopped into pieces
- large handful of green beans - washed and chopped into pieces
- 40 mls apple cider vinegar
- 1 orange
- 1/2 tsp vegetable stock powder
Add bacon to fry pan and cook whilst you prepare the vegetables. Check and stir after you have chopped each vegetable.
Add the Brussels Sprouts and Carrots to the fry pan and stir.
Add the apple cider vinegar, stir.
Chop the orange in half and squeeze both halves over the fry pan.
Sprinkle the veggie stock over the top and stir.
Place lid on pan, turn down the heat to low and leave to cook for 8-10 mins.
Add the chopped green beans, replace the lid and leave to sit for a further 5-10mins whilst you are finalising the cooking of your protein.
Makes 5-6 serves.
You can serve the Brussels Sprouts with roast pumpkin - yum yum yum
