Day 2: Boozy breaded Brussels sprouts.

So b sprouts are always a contentious one! A serious split camp with these little fellas but I flippin love them so I’m being selfish. I would happily eat them raw but for this recipe I’m trying to gain a few on the fence sprouters so I breaded and fried to make a disguise (love a rhyme). Not the most aesthetically appealing dish but the flavours ahhhh.

Tail about 10 sprouts and slice in two.
Into a buttered pan sautée for 5 min and then add a squeeze of lemon, generous splash of white wine, salt and pep.
Let them do their thing until golden brown.
Soooo good as is I had to stop myself from eating all of them at this point.
Set aside to cool for a few min
Set up a panko flake/egg replacer combo area and get breading
Into the deep frier for 5 min
Skewer up and get dipping


I’m all about short cuts for Christmas eats so I called on my three yummy pals.
Art of Zen Foods​ veganaise mayo, Rebel Chilli​ relish and Eat vegans vegan pesto

Pesto as is!

Chilli mix:
Large spoon of mayo
Large spoon of chilli
Squeeze of lemon and rice syrup
Holy moly just the best.


I see this as one of my many lazy st Stephens day nibbles. Just the yummiest side going.
