OHHHHH not sprouts
Those perfect little cabbages with tough to peel leaves..
Well they are delicious if you cook them a little bit differently from the way your grandmother did
Couldn’t buy loose ones here in RAK so had to buy a bag now thinking and searching ways to use the others
And boy do they taste good
Have several idea’s and hearing fro others also
One Brit/KSA friend roasts them with honey, rosemary and olive oil roasted
Fig balsamic and sea salt
My sister found chestnuts and bacon [will substitute beef bacon] and will try that tomorrow as found loose chestnuts in LUL RAK MALL
Then there was this Jamie Oliver one
MAIN THING is to cut them in half not to do those fiddly little crosses in the abse taught so perfectly by my late father
ENJOY what ever you do with them

1 Preheat oven to 200°C.
2 Parboil sprouts in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 3 minutes or until almost tender. Transfer to a colander and set aside to drain.
3 Using a mortar and pestle, finely pound the cumin and coriander seeds with a pinch of salt. Transfer three-quarters crushed spices to a large bowl and add sprouts, onion, fennel and oil. Toss to combine, then spread sprouts in an even layer over one roasting pan, and the onion and fennel over a second roasting pan.
4 Roast onion mixture for 1 hour or until caramelised, and sprouts for 40 minutes or until beginning to caramelise. Once roasted, toss onion mixture with sprouts to combine. Cover and keep warm.
5 Meanwhile, using a mortar and pestle, pound sesame seeds and hazelnuts until coarsely ground. Combine with remaining crushed spice mixture and set aside.
6 When ready to serve, combine the yoghurt with the tahini, garlic and lemon zest and juice. Season, and spread evenly over a large serving platter. Sprinkle with sumac.
7 Spoon the warm roasted sprout mixture over the yoghurt mixture, scraping up all the crispy bits left in the pan. Sprinkle with the sesame and spice mixture, and scatter with coriander, dill and mint leaves to serve
