Really good way to cook sprouts. Cooked them this way last year & they went down a treat, so same again I think.

Made this at Christmas and again with Sunday lunch. Totally brilliant flavours and rich enough that you don't have to faff around with the rest of the ingredients. Very nice - give it a try!
