Brussel Sprouts are definitely not just for Christmas! I absolutely love them all year around and since they are still in season I am determined to make the most of them! This easy peasy and super quick stir fry is a fuss free way of cooking this delicious brassica. The addition of miso and ginger really add tons of flavour and it’s perfect with a spicy kick from the chilli. It’s a great side dish or if you want to make it into a more substantial meal add some quinoa or brown rice.
500gr of Brussel Sprouts – trimmed and finely shredded
3 shallots – peeled and finely sliced
2 garlic cloves – crushed
1 red chilli – finely sliced
A thumb size piece of ginger – peeled and grated
1/2 tbsp of miso paste
2 tbsp of olive oil for cooking
A crack of back pepper
To sprinkle on top: a small handful of sesame seeds or some toasted pine nuts or both!
Add the oil to a large frying pan on a medium heat. Once hot add in the shallots. Fry for 2 minutes until they start to brown. Add in the chopped chilli, garlic and ginger. Keep cooking for another minute, make sure to keep on stirring to prevent form burning. Add in the shredded Brussel sprouts and cook, stirring for for 5-6 minutes.In a small bowl mix the miso paste with a dash of boiling water and pour over the sprouts. Mix everything together and cook for another minute. Adjust with salt and black pepper and serve either on its own or with some quinoa or brown rice.
