Roast Sumac Sprout Salad

Brussel 1a

Sprouts are not just for Christmas…!

Brussel sprouts? Bleugh you may say, but give this recipe a go! It really is one of my favourite salads at the moment. You can eat it warm or it is delicious cold too. (It makes a super tasty packed lunch).

Brussel 1

You have  a real contrast of complimentary flavours & textures: slight bitterness of the sprouts contrasting with the sweetness of pomegranate seeds & dried cranberries, crunchiness of the toasted cashew nuts & pumpkin seeds & delicate sweetness & softness from the roasted squash. There is also heat from chilli flakes & a lemony twist imparted by the sumac & a fresh verdant burst from extra virgin olive oil. It is certainly a case of eat the rainbow!

    • Thank you. So happy you like it! If you roast even the little brussel sprout leaves which fall off in preparation, you get little sprout crisps!
