blackened brussels sprouts, garlic and almonds

I’m not fond of winter, it’s cold with short days. But it is completely redeemed by being the season of brussels sprouts.

I know some people hate them, but they REALLY are great fried or roasted.

This time I pan-fried them in a little olive oil with garlic and chopped dry roasted almonds. A lovely combination of flavours and texture.

This works as a vegetable side dish or with some pasta.

I ate it with some pasta and a sprinkling of Vegusto Piquant cheese. I didn’t photograph it before I scoffed it down.
