For the dressing
- STEP 1
Set a frying pan over a medium heat, add the hazelnuts and toast for about 8 mins until golden here and there. Tip onto a plate or baking tray and set aside to cool. Toast the cumin seeds in the same pan for 30 secs until fragrant, then remove from the heat. Whisk all the dressing ingredients into the pan with the cumin seeds. Season generously, add the onion and set aside.
- STEP 2
Roughly chop the hazelnuts. Pile the shredded sprouts into a large bowl, pour over the dressing and toss very well. Set aside for 10 mins, or up to 1 hr in the fridge. Fold in the coriander (if using), the pomegranate and hazelnuts before serving.
Sprouts are a good alternative to cabbage or kale in slaws and salads, but as they lack a definitive crunch or hot pepperiness, it’s best to let them mingle with their dressing for a while. A processor makes the shredding super quick.
