Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Put the sprouts in the pan, cut-side down, and leave them to sizzle away happily for 10 mins without disturbing them.

  • STEP 2

    Halfway through cooking, dot over the butter and leave it to sizzle and brown – the sprouts need to be really crispy and dark brown. If they are just lightly brown, carry on cooking for another 5-10 mins.

  • STEP 3

    Scatter over the sesame seeds and stir-fry everything until the seeds are toasted. Off the heat, toss through the pomegranate seeds, then season the sprouts with salt and tip into a serving dish. Drizzle with the pomegranate molasses before serving.

RECIPE TIPS
'BURNT' GREENS

'Burning' your greens sounds like something to avoid, but it can give them a whole new depth of flavour that's like the addictive crispy seaweed (basically cabbage) you get in Chinese restaurants. The art to burning sprouts or cabbage is to sizzle them gently so by the time the cut side is deep brown, the rest of the vegetable has wilted in the heat.
