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

Cook Time: 10 minutes

  • 10 fl oz/ 300ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • Pinch salt, pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp clear honey

  • Heat the oil in a large pan, add the Brussels sprouts and fry for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully pour in the vegetable stock and stir in the mustard and seasoning.
