Autumn quick dish: Brussels Sprouts with marinated feta and sesame seeds

Braised brussels sprouts in butter with black and white sesame seeds and marinated feta

Gosh, I remember the days when I hated these things. Oh how times have changed! Brussels can make an impressive side dish with the right treatment. Here’s one of my faves…

  1. Remove stem, quarter and wash the sprouts
  2. Blanch in salted water until slightly soft
  3. Melt a nob of butter in a fry pan, once hot add blanched sprouts
  4. Saute on high for about a minute or two flicking the pan to coat sprouts with the butter, then turn off heat
  5. Sprinkle with black and white sesame seeds and dot some marinated feta

Quick health facts: sesame seeds are high in calcium and great for tonifying the Kidneys. Brussels sprouts are also high in Vit C and come from the cruciferous family, sporting the same anti-cancer properties.
