sprout stirfry!

ingredients for sprout stirfry

Like a lot of people, we found ourselves eating up all sorts of bits and pieces after Christmas. We bought sprouts onnastalk for our festive dinner of roast goose, cooked a load up for the meal and subsequent bubble ‘n’ squeak, and then … forgot all about them. I’d stashed the stalk in the log store, and only remembered it on 8 Jan! But they were fine, bless them. I don’t understand why people don’t like sprouts – they’re only teeny, tiny cabbages, after all. We 💛 ’em.

So, I chopped a red onion, and sliced a fat carrot into thin batons. These, together julienned ginger and garlic, were stirfried together in a hot wok for a few minutes. Then, I sliced/diced the sprouts and added them to the wok for a couple of minutes more, add soya sauce, and a handful of flaked almonds.

Served with egg noodles cooked with a teaspoon of sesame oil in the water. Quick, delicious.
