Ingredients

  • 300g brussels sprouts
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • 50g black pudding (or chorizo, see tip), quartered and sliced
  • 50g cooked chestnuts (see tip)
  • Good drizzle of clear honey
  • Splash of madeira
  • Zest of ½ lemon
  • Leaves from 3 fresh thyme sprigs

Method

  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the whole sprouts. Simmer for 5-6 minutes until just tender. Drain and refresh under cold water, then leave to drain.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat, add the black pudding and fry for 5 minutes until crisp. Loosely crumble in the chestnuts, add the sprouts and honey, then fry with the black pudding for 5 minutes more.
  3. Pour over a good splash of madeira and cook for a further 3 minutes. Sprinkle over the zest and thyme, season well and serve.

  1. Ready-cooked vacuum-sealed chestnuts from a tin or pack work well for this recipe.

    Next time, use sliced chorizo instead of black pudding.
