Brussel Sprouts with Chilli


This is a super easy recipe with only 5 ingredients including the olive oil. I usually make this with Broccoli instead of Brussel Sprouts but thought that they are both a bitter, earthy vegetable and that it could work for both vegetables.



300g brussel sprouts
2 tbsp olive oil
1 red birds eye chilli
1 big garlic clove
3-4 anchovy fillets in oil


Wash and slice the Brussel sprouts in half, leave a few whole. Bring salted water to a boil and add the Brussel Sprouts and leave it to boil for about 4 minutes. Drain the Brussel Sprouts and immediately submerge it into ice water to stop the cooking process and to retain the green colour, we don’t want grey mushy Brussel Sprouts!
Add olive oil, chilli, garlic and anchovy fillets to a pan over medium to high heat. Once the anchovy fillets has been resolved add the drained Brussel Sprouts and sauté for a few minutes. Serve as a side dish.
