Buttery Sage & Onion Sprouts – to serve 8
- 85g butter
- 3 onions, cut into thickish slices
- 8 sage leaves, chopped
- 350g Brussels sprouts
- 200g frozen peas
Heat half the butter in a large frying pan and soften the onions over a low heat for about 15 minutes. You want them really soft but not brown. Add most of the sage.
Meanwhile, cook the sprouts in a pan of boiling water for about 4 minutes, add the peas and cook for another minute or until just tender.
Drain, reserving splash of water, then add the sprouts to the peas and onions, along with the rest of the butter, stirring well so everything is coated in butter. Add the reserved cooking water if you think it needs it.
Season with loads of black pepper and some salt and sprinkle the reserved sage on top.
