Sensational Spiced Sprouts recipe

Ingredients

Onions
Coriander seeds
Cumin seeds
Brussels sprouts
Unsalted butter

Method

1. Fry 2 peeled and chopped onions in a pan over a low heat for 5-10 minutes until just tender.

2. Crush 2 teaspoons cumin seeds with 2 teaspoons coriander seeds and add to the pan.

3. Cook for a further minute, then stir in 500g Brussels sprouts, sliced, and cook for 8-10 minutes until soft.

4. Stir in 30g unsalted butter and serve for a tasty seasonal side dish.

The recipe above is from Sainsbury's. It is easy to make and has proved popular in the M household even amongst those with a known sprout aversion. We commend this recipe to you, and  are even considering having sprouts served in this fashion on the  big day.

  1. I'm afraid this only lacks one final instruction, and you'll find that at the end of Samuel Johnson's recipe for cucumbers:
    "It has been a common saying of physicians in England, that a cucumber should be well sliced, and dressed with pepper and vinegar, and then thrown out, as good for nothing."
    Still, enjoy. ;-)

  2. They are seriously nice, honest! (unless you really, really, really hate sprouts - or cumin or coriander or butter...)
