The Brussels Sprout !

When you think of brussels sprouts, do you think of over boiled, mushy little grey balls on a plate?   You know what I'm talking about.....that smelly little vegetable your mum placed on your dinner plate and insisted you eat before leaving the table.  

Well, I certainly remember.

Now, however I have a completely new memory.  One tasting of freshness and zing.

If you give this recipe a try, you too might be able to banish those evil memories.....

Brussels Sprout Slaw


18 brussels sprouts
1 red onion
3 tbsp sour cream
juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp dijon mustard
Sea salt and pepper

Serves 6 as a side dish


  1. Using the fine shredder attachment on your food processor or a mandolin, finely slice your brussels sprouts and red onion, giving the sprouts a good wash.
  2. In a separate jar (or bowl), place the sour cream, lemon and mustard and give a good shake to combine.  Season well and adjust the consistency by adding more lemon juice or a little water. (This can be made a day in advance).
  3. At least 1 hour prior to serving, mix your dressing through the shredded sprouts and onion thoroughly.  

I personally like to dress the salad a good hour before serving as it helps to soften the sprouts a little.
