Brussel Sprouts, Ham Hog and Pineapple stir-fry

I mentioned before how much I liked the recent Nigella transformation, her new TV show and updated recipes. I even bought the book and already cooked 1/3 of its content and wasn’t disappointed with any  of the recipes. No fuss, lovely ingredients, full of new ideas and new takes on classics.

One such recipe is a Stir-fry with double sprouts (Brussel sprouts and bean sprouts), chilli & pineapple. It’s good enough on its own, but even better with some pulled ham hog. I also didn’t have beansprouts this time, which makes my version ‘single sprout’ one.

3 spring onions, trimmed and chopped

250g cooked and cooled brown rice (or any other rice of your choice)

250g cooked pull ham hog (optional)

2-3 tablespoons soy sauce

2-3 tablespoons lime juice

chopped fresh coriander to serve (optional)

Method:

  1. Prep and chop all ingredients beforehand.
  2. Heat up a wok, add groundnut oil. Add the Brussels sprouts, chilli, ginger  and spring onion and stir-fry for about 5 minutes.
