I would like to share my Brussels sprouts recipe with you here. Nutty Brussels sprouts prepared quickly and easily.

Cabbage sprouts are particularly popular in autumn and winter. The supermarket also offers this vegetable beyond these seasons. That’s good, because I always like Brussels sprouts!

Cabbage sprouts go excellently with game dishes but also with other meat and fish. As the flavour of the cabbage buds is aromatically strong, the cabbage also works wonderfully in purely vegetarian combinations.

So that you can be sure of cooking success in your kitchen, I will show you the preparation step by step with a cooking video. I wish you good luck and bon appétit!

Brussels sprouts leaves
Brussels sprout leaves are an exciting component of a healthy salad

Sprout leaves

Individual Brussels sprout leaves taste finer and combine better with the other ingredients.

Unfortunately, the preparation takes a little longer.

Blanch the Brussels sprouts

Halved florets

I opted for halved florets.

To do this, cut the cabbage sprouts in half lengthwise.

Topping for cooked cauliflower
Almond flour and butter are a great topping for the cauliflower and at the same time a gluten-free substitute for breadcrumbs.

Roast almonds

Roast the grated almonds in a pan, leave to cool, add the butter and olive oil, season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
