Ahh, the season of the humble sprout. You either love ‘em or hate ‘em but you can’t escape ‘em at this time of year. Brussels sprouts are what makes a Christmas Turkey dinner and are even known to cause the odd argument between parent and child – there’s no pudding!
However, your mum was right to make you eat them. They contain more than your daily requirement of vitamin K and plenty of B vitamins which is great for maintaining your energy – you’ll be thankful for that in the mid-afternoon Christmas slump!
Whether you are a fan of sprouts and looking to make the most of them before and during Christmas, or you have a sprout or two left over from Christmas day and want to know how to make them into a gourmet delight, these five recipes are for you. All five are courtesy of The Harrogate Girl with a little help from Fodder and can be accessed on The Harrogate Girl blog just here.
This Brussels Sprout pad Thai looks gorgeous.
