Author: 
Recipe type: Sides
Ingredients
  • 100g (3.5 oz) Brussels sprouts
  • Splash olive oil
  • 8 rashers bacon, diced
  • 2 large carrots, peeled & diced
  • Knob of butter (or use extra olive oil, if you don't do dairy)
  • Sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped coriander (cilantro)
  • 1 tablespoon of hazelnuts, chopped
Instructions
  1. Peel the exterior leaves off the sprouts & remove the tough ends. Cut the sprouts in half & finely slice them.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the bacon for a few minutes. Add the carrots and cook for a further 5 minutes, making sure you keep stiring to prevent it from sticking.
  3. Add the butter (or extra olive oil) to the pan along with the sprouts, and stir for another five minutes. You need to keep heating until the sprouts have started to soften, but still have some crunch in their texture.
  4. Season and serve, garnishing with the coriander (cilantro) and hazelnuts.

    The slicing blade on the food processor is fast, fast for slicing a lot of the brussels sprouts, and you can leave them whole for that as well. I usually slice a whole bunch for the week to use. Looks like some tasty additions!
