Recipe – Brussels Sprouts Mash
Updated: Sep 6, 2022
500g Brussels sprouts
25g butter, plus extra to serve
75ml double cream
Fresh herbs (eg sage) to garnish
Prepare the sprouts by discarding any tough, coarse outer leaves. Using a sharp knife, cut a deep cross in the base of each sprout. This allows the centre to cook without overdoing the outside.
Put the prepared sprouts in a large pan of salted water, bring to the boil and cook for 5-6 mins until the sprouts are tender.
In a separate pan, melt the butter and warm the cream together over a low heat. Remove from the heat when the butter has completely melted.
Drain the sprouts after cooking, then whizz in a food processor with the butter and cream and a pinch of pepper. Season further to taste.
Spoon into a dish, adding an extra knob of butter and garnishing with sage, to serve.
