Brussels Sprouts with Tahini Drizzle and HazelnutsIngredients: 

200g Brussels sprouts (20 approx)
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp hazelnuts
1 tbsp maple syrup
For the drizzle:
2 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp maple syrup
Juice of 1 lemon



Instructions


1. Preheat the oven to 180’ fan and bring a pan of salted water to the boil.

2. Prepare the sprouts by cutting the base, halving and blanch for 2 minutes (no longer). Drain immediately and plunge into a bowl of cold water to keep their vibrant green colour.

3. Put the pumpkin seeds, hazelnuts and maple syrup on a lined baking tray and mix well to coat with a good season of salt. Roast for 10 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, make the drizzle by combining the ingredients (I like to give mine a quick blend in the Nutribullet so it is really smooth, but you can also just whisk with a fork).

5. Heat a medium size pan on a medium high heat with 1 tbsp oil and sauté the sprouts for 2 minutes until they begin to turn golden.

6. Drizzle the tahini dressing over the sprouts, and crumble the sweet hazelnut seed mix on top.
