Tap For Ingredients


  1. Who wants to spend ages prepping sprouts when there’s so much else going on? Not me! This kind of thing is exactly the reason I fell in love with my food processor. I've come up with this super quick recipe where you just rattle the sprouts straight through the processor and into a pan with some gorgeous flavours to pimp them right up. Done.
  2. Push the Brussel sprouts through the fine slicing attachment of a food processor, then fill the processor bowl with water and leave to one side.
  3. Add a splash of olive oil and the butter to a large pan over a medium heat. Add the bacon, sage leaves and a pinch of salt and pepper and fry for 5 to 10 minutes, or until lovely and crispy. Quickly drain the sprouts and add them straight to the pan and turn the heat right up – it doesn’t matter if they’re still a bit wet, this will help them steam. Pop the lid on and fry for around 10 minutes, or until soft, adding a splash of water as you go, if needed.
  4. Add the Worcestershire sauce, toss everything together then turn the heat off. Gun in the garlic – you really want that hum of raw garlic – then give it another good stir and serve straight away. Delicious!
