Brussel Sprouts are back in the boxes and I am running out of new ideas already with still weeks to go until Christmas. That is until I found this fab recipe.
Indian Spiced Brussel Sprouts
2 tbsp coconut oil
½ tsp brown mustard seeds
1 large or 2 small garlic clove(s), grated
1 large knob of ginger, scrape off outer skin and grate
1 fresh red chilli, seeds removed, finely chopped
500g brussels sprouts, outer leaves removed and halved if very large
¼ tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp cumin
Juice of half a lemon
Large handful of fresh coriander, chopped
Bring a pan of salted water to the boil. Add the sprouts and cook until to your liking. I like mine quite well done but I know others like theirs crunchy. Drain. Heat the oil in a pan, but don’t let it smoke. Reduce to a medium heat and add the mustard seeds, garlic, chilli and ginger. Next add the cumin,
the turmeric, garam masala and a little sea salt. Fry for a minute and then add the sprouts and stir to coat with the spiced oil. Add the lemon juice and chopped coriander. Stir well and serve warm.
