For all you fans of Brussels sprouts, here is something a little different. However, if you don’t like such a strong taste from the sprouts, you can blanch them in boiling water for 2 minutes and then run under cold water before cooking in the vegetable stock but reduce the final cooking time. Delicious served with pan-fried steak. Try adding chopped almonds just before serving to give this dish a bit of crunch.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
