Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts And Chestnuts Recipe

This Christmas, even sprouts-haters will love this recipe for delicious maple syrup caramelised brussel sprouts, coupled with chestnuts. You could of course substitute the maple syrup for another vegan liquid sweetener such as agave syrup, coconut nectar or brown rice syrup, but we like maple syrup for its traditional Christmas-y flavour. If you don't have or don't like chestnuts, you could use pre-cooked chickpeas instead, as they are equally chewy and satisfying.

Method

  • Blanch the Brussel sprouts in boiling salty water for 10 minutes or until tender. Then, drain them and cut them in half.
  • Heat the olive oil on medium heat. Add the drained sprouts and the chestnuts and stir-fry for about a minute. Add the maple syrup and mix gently to coat the sprouts and chestnuts. Cook for about 5 more minutes, until the maple syrup starts to caramelise.
  • Remove from the heat and season with sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Serve with a vegan nut roast or a vegan Christmas main of your choice and gravy, if you wish.
