Spicy Stir-fried Sprout Tops


1 tsp. neutral oil
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. chili flakes
60g Brussels sprouts tops, trimmed and roughly chopped
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 garlic clove, minced
2cm cube of ginger, minced
1 Tbs. soy sauce
2 green onions, finely chopped.


Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and chilli flakes and cook for about 3 minutes, until soft and beginning to brown.

Add the sprout tops and cook for 5-7 minutes until greens are wilted and beginning to brown in places. Push to one side of the pan and pour the sesame oil into the cleared space. Add the garlic and ginger and cook in the oil for about 30 seconds, then mix with with the vegetables.

Cook everything for one more minute, then add the soy sauce and stir. Remove from heat and serve immediately with rice or noodles, garnishing with the green onions.

We love getting our veg bag from Down Farm. It's different every week and always super fresh so it's a nice treat for us to look forward to.
