Not a first course, for me


But a cracking accompaniment

  1. Wash the Brussels sprouts, make a cut in the stalk, remove the outer leaves, wash again and drain well.
  2. If they are large, cut them in half.
  3. Heat a pan of water with a tablespoon of salt.
  4. Bring to the boil, add the Brussels sprouts and cook for about five minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, drain the sprouts and reserve.
  6. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and sauté the Brussels sprouts, cut side down (if cut in half), to brown.
  7. Season to taste.
  8. Add the garlic, chillies and pine nuts, stirring from time to time. Serve, sprinkled with the cheese.


Guindilla peppers come from Navarra in Spain and I have never seen fresh ones in the UK, so you will have to use the jarred variety which are usually green in colour.

Grana Padano cheese is available from the main supermarkets and some specialist cheesemongers. If you are unable to get it, use Parmesan instead.

Vary the garlic and chilli quantities to your own taste.
