Chestnuts and Sprouts 2nd December 2017

Chestnuts and Sprouts

Brussels sprouts have a bad reputation, mainly because they are often served after being boiled into a squidgy and disgusting mess. It doesn’t have to be that way! Here a way to serve crisp, tasty sprouts with the added bonus of Christmassy chestnuts. They look and taste great and you might even convert some people to loving their sprouts.



  1. Drain the chestnuts.
  2. Peel the tough outer leaves from the sprouts and cut off the stalks. Cut them in half.
  3. Cut the vegan bacon rashers into thin, short strips.
  4. Heat a knob of margarine in a frying pan and add the chestnuts, sprouts and bacon. Fry for around 5-10 minutes until the chestnuts and sprouts soften and start to brown.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
