    I've just bought some from the greengrocer. Well cooked, and mashed with butter to accompany my beef casserole. Gorjuss!

    I love them! They're great stir fried, and make good coleslaw too.

    I love 'em too. Cute tasty little mini-cabbages, what's not to like?

    Love them. Tried roasting them last Sunday, with olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. Crunchy and caramelised on the outside, soft inside. Delicious!

    Followed by Lindor mint chocolate (ball) ..... @Ivartheboneless
    I hope they don't just make them at Christmas?
    Purple sprouts, how exotic @Doitforfree !

    Not a big fan to be honest... But @Mangleworzle, I do like that jumper.

    But then, @colpee, I also like the badge.

    Cute tasty little mini-cabbages, that's what's not to like.

    While I'm here, I'm wondering if whoever suggested making coleslaw out of sprouts* also likes to clean their floor with a toothbrush since the two activities have an identical fiddly labour to usable result ratio.

    It’s all about the chemistry innit!

    It was me who suggested coleslaw.
    It's not fiddly. I just chop them up using the slicer bit of the food processer. Also the onion and carrot. Then add mayo. Takes minutes at most. In fact, it takes less time than chopping them to stir fry, now I think of it.
    Good food from scratch takes a few minutes to prepare. Even Nigel Slater, who is almost always right about these things, thinks half an hour is fast food. (He calls sprouts "farty little balls of wind", so he's not right about everything.)

    I'd like to say they were, but I got them in Morrison's!

    Never tried brussels coleslaw, I love kale-slaw so I probably would like it. Only downside is that brussels are generally a winter vegetable and I make salads mainly in the summer. Sounds like a good thing to try.
