sauté of red brussels sprouts with almonds recipe

Red Brussels Sprouts

Sautéed with a dash of vinegar, these amazing crimson Brussels sprouts keep their colour.

for 6

  • 750g/2lbs small red Brussels sprouts
  • 50g/2oz whole almonds, cut in half lengthwise and toasted
  • 30g unsalted butter
  • olive oil
  • dried chilli flakes – to taste
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Wash, trim and dry the Brussels sprouts. Melt a knob of butter with some olive oil in a sauté pan. Add the sprouts and chilli flakes and cook over a moderate heat.

Keep shaking the pan to avoid the sprouts becoming too brown and when still crunchy, take off the heat stirring in the toasted almonds.

Sprinkle generously with Maldon salt and freshly ground pepper.
