Seasonal local food recipe No.211 – Shaved brussels sprouts, olive oil, lemon and pecorino cheesePosted on January 10th, 2014 No comments
“A recipe that is enough to convert even the most ardent sprouts-averse folk,” according to The Guardian. What a perfect use for the freshly-picked Brussels sprout stalk in Camel CSA’s vegetable boxes this week.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
450g brussels sprouts
5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp salt
3½ tbsp fresh lemon juice
½-1 tsp whole black peppercorns, crushed
115g pecorino cheese, grated or shaved
Rinse the sprouts, then pat dry with kitchen roll. Remove any discoloured outer leaves, then cut the sprouts in half, lengthways. Very thinly slice them the sprouts crossways, transferring to a large, shallow serving bowl as you go.
Drizzle the oil over the sprouts, sprinkle with salt and toss well. Add the lemon juice and pepper and toss again. Lay the cheese on the top of the salad and serve immediately.Seasonal local food recipes brussels sprout stalk, cornwall, local food, mindy fox, the perfectly tossed salad, weekly veg boxes
