We have loads of sprouts still in the ground and yesterday I found a great way of using some of them up.

This is a good recipe if you are short on time as the whole thing takes about 10 minutes to prepare and cook.

You will need

Some oil or butter or both

1 Onion finely chopped

1 Clove of Garlic squished

Couple of hands full of sprouts finely chopped if raw or smashed up if cooked

A stock cube (Chicken or veg) I didn't have this so I used a big teaspoon of Miso.

Black pepper.

Cool, no measuring.

Fry the onion and garlic in a good sized sauce pan until soft

Add the sprouts and cover with water

Sprinkle in stock cube and season with pepper

Bring to the boil, simmer for 3 to 4 minutes

Sounds pretty good, I'd have to add bacon.

I am reminded of a tenant I once had-from time to time she would bring over a bowl of Big Soup. I called it Big Soup because everything in it was huge. A third of an ear of corn, entire carrots, potato chunks, pork ribs-with the bone. It was always a fine meal.

Whole brussels sprouts would go perfectly with that Big Soup.

I am loving this! I planted 12 Brussel Sprout plants this year so I am sure this recipe will come in handy!
