Brussel sprout tops

Sprout tops are one of the most flavoursome greens and they have the hint of a Brussels sprout with the texture of healthy greens. They’re probably a bit more versatile than the sprout itself and can be served with anything from chestnuts to bacon.You can cook these in advance and drain them under a cold tap to stop them cooking further and discolouring. They can then be simply mixed with the cooked bacon and onions, buttered and seasoned and either reheated in the oven with foil while the partridge is cooking or in the microwave.

Sauteed Brussel sprouts

Though this recipe includes bacon, I like to make it without the bacon.  You can also try to just sautee the brussel sprouts withouth boiling them first.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions
 

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. If sprouts are very small, cut in half; otherwise cut into quarters.
  • Cook the sprouts until barely tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain.
  • Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring, until brown but not crisp, 3 to 6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to drain on a paper towel.
  • Pour out all but about 1 tablespoon bacon fat from the pan.
  • Add oil to the pan and heat over medium heat.
  • Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft but not browned, reducing the heat if necessary, about 4 minutes.
  • Stir in thyme (or savory) sprigs, salt and pepper. Increase heat to medium-high, add the Brussels sprouts, and cook, tossing or stirring occasionally, until tender and warmed through, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove the herb sprigs.
  • Add the bacon, thyme (or savory) leaves and lemon juice, if using, and toss.

lf you clon’t have a full pound of paneer that’s okay-just be sure to adcl extra vegetables or cashews.
Since y0u will use high heat the seeds will cook very quickly in oil. Therefore, have all your ingredients ready to add to the spices immediately.
