Comments Off on Braised Brussels with Dates

You either love them, or you can’t stand the sight of them.
They, I think, are delicious; not only are they good for the real Christmas lunch, but they are an absolute must for Boxing Day bubble and squeak.

Ingredients
 

  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 150 g brown chestnut mushrooms, quartered
  • 500 g sprouts, trimmed
  • 8 large Medjool dates, chopped into small pieces
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 50 g salted butter, cubed
  • 2 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chives, chopped

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oil in a large sauté pan, so you have enough room to have all the sprouts in a single layer.
  • Add the mushrooms, onions and garlic and cook until all the moisture has gone and the onions have taken a little colour.
  • Add the sprouts, dates, salt pepper and a touch of water.
  • Bring to a boil, turn down the heat and cover with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Simmer for 10-12 minutes or until the sprouts are cooked. I like them slightly overcooked.
  • Remove the lid and boil away all the moisture, or simply tip-off.
  • Add the butter, swirl and melt, and serve with plenty of chopped chives and parsley.
