Ingredients you'll need
  • 1kg Brussels sprouts
  • 200g peeled chestnuts
  • 200g organic unsmoked lardons
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Fill a pan with water. Add a pinch of salt. Cover. Bring to the boil. Wash the sprouts and trim off the stalky bottoms so they’re neat and flat. Pull off any torn outer leaves.

  • 2.

    When the water’s boiling, add the sprouts. Simmer, without the lid, for 5 mins till they are just cooked but still nice and firm. Drain them.

  • 3.

    While the sprouts simmer, roughly chop the chestnuts.

  • 4.

    Warm a splash of olive oil in a deep frying pan or wok. When it’s hot, add the chestnuts and lardons. Stir and fry for 5-8 mins till the lardons are crisp and golden.

  • 5.

    Add the sprouts. Stir and fry for 2-3 mins so everything is mixed through and warm. Tip into a serving dish and serve.
