Peas And Brussels Sprouts With Hazelnut And Orange Glaze:

Fourthly, do you fancy trying this Peas And Brussels Sprouts With Hazelnut And Orange Glaze?

200 g prepared Brussels sprouts

50 g butter

50 g hazelnuts, roughly chopped

zest and juice of one orange

1 teaspoon sugar

sea salt and black pepper

Preparation:

1.) Cook the Brussels sprouts in boiling, salted water for 5 minutes, add the peas, bring back to the boil and simmer for a further 2 minutes. Drain and place in a warm serving dish.

Melt the butter in a small heavy-based frying pan. When the butter is foaming add the chopped nuts and fry for 1 minute until golden.

Add the orange juice and the sugar and cook for a further minute. Add the grated orange zest. Season and toss the vegetables in the sauce.

The less water you use when cooking peas, the less vitamin C is lost. Steaming helps to conserve this vitamin.

When boiling frozen peas, add enough water to cover, bring to the boil and then cover and simmer for 3 minutes.

    I would never have thought of any of these! So inventive. I might try the Peas And Brussels Sprouts With Hazelnut And Orange Glaze as that sounds delicious, although my husband likes bacon with everything so perhaps the peas in blankets would make him happy. #KCACOLS
