Roasted brussels sprouts
300g of sprouts
4 tablespoons of rapeseed oil
Trim the outer leaves from the sprouts and cut the ends off. Place all of the ingredients in a sealed plastic bag, shake it vigorously to make sure that the sprouts are well coated. Then put them on a baking tray and place in the oven which is preheated to 200c. Every 5-10 mins take the tray out and shake it to move the sprouts around and make sure that they cook evenly. After approximately 35 minutes the sprouts should be turning brown and almost black, remove them and serve immediately.
Roasted brussels sprouts with bacon
This is essentially the same recipe as above except you add 6 pieces of bacon to the dish. Cut the bacon up into 1 inch pieces and sprinkle on top of the sprouts before you place them in the oven. Cook the same way and serve immediately.
