Brussel Sprouts!! Ewwww! Like most kids, I used to despise these little green balls. Now that I’ve grown older and my taste buds have changed, now I don’t mind them at all! These Christmas Brussel Sprouts are fabulously tasty and would be a perfect addition to any Christmas feast!
I’m using nutmeg again for this recipe – as it really is the ultimate Christmas spice – and, it goes so well with all the other ingredients. Also the grated lemon rind gives a real zing to these little beauties. The coconut cream soaks into these Christmas Brussel Sprouts and gives them a deliciously creamy flavour. I’ve used two cloves of garlic in this recipe, because – garlic! It’s just the best, and makes pretty much any savoury dish taste soooo good! If you love garlic, you would really love our Super simple Garlic Bread recipe. We also have an awesome video we created on how to make it on our YouTube Channel.
Brussel Sprouts are almost a super food, packed with awesome goodies! – Very high in Vitamin K and C. They are also high in B Vitamins. They have great antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties. For more info on these incredible gems, have a look at this link.
