I like Brussels sprouts – even when over-cooked, brown and a bit smelly. But I prefer them al dente so they keep that fresh, green, nutty flavour. Mash is a favourite in winter in cold places; it gives you comfort in a special way. I love any mash with a vegetable stir-fry, and you can kind of use any vegetables you have, so if you need to clean out your vegetable drawers in the fridge, this is the perfect dish.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the mash

Quantity Ingredient
600g potatoes
400g celeriac
2 garlic cloves
100g kale
50g butter
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the stir-fry

Quantity Ingredient
400g brussels sprouts
2 leeks
2 apples
2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

Method

  1. For the mash, peel the potatoes and celeriac and cut into large cubes. Chop the garlic. Put the potatoes, celeriac and garlic into a large saucepan, cover generously with water, bring to the boil and let them simmer for 25 minutes. Chop the kale, add to the pan and let it simmer for a further 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 100ml of the cooking liquid. Mash together with a balloon whisk and, while the mixture is still lumpy, add the butter with the reserved cooking water. Stir with a spoon and add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. While the potatoes and celeriac are boiling, make the stir-fry. Cut the bases off the sprouts, then press each sprout down between your hands, and give it a light push so that the outer leaves loosen. Gently peel these off and set aside. Cut the inner part of each sprout in half or quarters. Slice the leeks and rinse well. Slice the apples.
  3. Heat the oil in a big sauté pan, add the leeks, halved sprouts, garlic and nutmeg and sauté for 5 minutes, then add the apples and stir-fry for another 3 minutes. Add the sprout leaves, season to taste with salt and pepper and serve with the mash.
