Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts

No frazzled nerves here, trying to peel, or more irritatingly, remove the skins from the zillion crevices in chestnuts. Just a pack of cooked and peeled chestnuts, which makes it all very laid-back.

A large frying pan

Method

First, put a medium pan of water on to boil. Blanch the Brussels sprouts for 30 seconds, and drain them well. Next, peel the shallots (or peel the onion and finely chop it, in a mini chopper if you have one).

Now heat the butter in a large frying pan, and when it is foaming, add the shallots or onion and fry for 2 minutes over medium heat until golden. Next, add the Brussels sprouts and season well with salt and pepper.

Then reduce the heat slightly and cook for about 8 minutes, stirring them around, until the shallots or onion and Brussels sprouts are golden and cooked through.

Lastly, add the chestnuts to the pan and cook for a further 3–4 minutes until the chestnuts are hot, then pile everything into a warm serving dish.
