Sprouts, for years I’ve been trying to tell myself that they’re actually just fairy cabbages in an attempt to make them more appealing but for the most part I’ve hated them.
However much I’ve hated them however, I thoroughly believe that Christmas dinner just wouldn’t be Christmas dinner without a sprout on your plate.
The times I’ve spent Christmas’s with my GBF, I’ve managed to pass my compulsory sprout under the table to his dog lucky, who absolutely loves the thing but this year I’m going back home to mu Mum’s and thanks to Vivera’s bacon pieces, I’ve made sprouts not only edible but actually quite appetizing!
200g sprouts, halved and sliced
100g Vivera plant bacon pieces
100g ready cooked chestnuts, quartered
1 red onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tbsps olive oil
Heat oil in a frying pan.
Fry the onion and garlic for a couple of minutes until the onion starts to become transparent.
Add sprouts and stir fry for a couple of minutes.
Add the Vivera plant bacon pieces and chestnuts and continue to fry for around another 5 minutes.
