Chilli and maple syrup sprouts

Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 – 2 red chillies
  • 1 x bunch of spring onions
  • 500g Brussels sprouts
  • Vegetable or groundnut oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
  • 1 lime
  • ½ bunch of coriander

Method

  1. Peel and finely slice the garlic. Halve the red chillies, remove the seeds and finely slice also. Trim the spring onions and slice
  2. Trim the Brussels sprouts, removing any brown or tough outer leaves, and then finely slice them on the slicing attachment of a food processor. If you don’t have one, you can do this by hand, just shred as finely as you can
  3. Place a large frying pan or wok on a medium heat. Pour in a few tablespoons of oil then add the garlic and chilli. Fry for a minute, then add the spring onions
  4. Fry for a couple more minutes, till everything is a little golden then stir in the shredded Brussels sprouts. Turn the heat up, add a splash of water to the pan, then cover with a lid for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cooked through
  5. Remove the lid, stir in the soy, sesame oil, maple and squeeze in the lime and flash fry for a couple of minutes until charred golden and stick. Tear over the coriander leaves and serve

Georgina’s twist on a classic make these a perfect festive addition. The side of dreams, sweet maple against the sharp heat of the chillies is a sensational combination.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
