I used chunky cut cabbage instead of brussels sprouts and it's an easy, nice way to do a simple veg mix.

using the stock from boiling parsnips makes the absolutely best gravy ever, in fact the stronger tasting veg, sprouts swede cabbage etc., are all excellent for gravies.

use veggie stock as it goes much better with all the veg. good idea though.

I added chopped cabbage to the pan at the same time as the peas. Very good addition.

Of course the strained liquid can be used for gravy. It is not water it is chicken stock. I have made this several times as it behaves so well when left. The vegetables do not overcook so great when you are entertaining a crowd.

Sorry - but I so cannot see the drained water being used for gravy, or anything else, when it's had b'srpouts cooked in it. I use my veg water and potato water without fail, for soup or gravy, but absolutely not if it has had b'sprouts, cabbage or cauliflower, and maybe kale. Most other veg, including broccoli and spinach, even parsnip and turnip flavours, go into the soup pot.

Great alternative to plain boiled veg, quick and easy to prepare. Nice fresh flavour.
