Had this last night, adapted from a recipe from a New Zealand Magazine. Great way to have sprouts

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crush the peppercorns in a mortor and pestle and then combine in a small bowl with the softened butter.
  2. Refrigerate until needed.
  3. Cut a small slice from the stalk end of each Brussel Sprout to help separate the leaves, Pull off the outer leaves of the sprouts very carefully and finely slice the tight centres.
  4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the hazelnuts and sauté for 2 minutes until toasted.
  5. Add the Brussel sprouts and stock and sauté for a further 2 minutes then season with salt to taste.
  6. Remove from the heat and toss through the black pepper butter.
  7. Put into a serving bowl or on individual plates.

This looks like a great recipe, I'm definitely going to have to try it. You might be able to draw in a greater audience for it by correcting the spelling in the title from Brussell to Brussels or Brussel. :-)

Very, very nice ! Even my husband (whose favorite vegetable is definitely NOT brussel sprouts) ate these with gusto. The sprouts, nuts, and lots of black pepper make a delicious combination. Only thing I did differently from the recipe was to saute them in step number 5 for about five minutes as they were underdone for my tastes at 2 minutes. Thanks for posting !
