If we were sprouts, we’d have fired our PR manager long ago. Those little bite-sized lettuces have had years of bad press, but if everyone stopped boiling them into a bland mush and started frying them up nice and crispy, we’d see they’re a different kettle of sprouts.

500g Brussels sprouts
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp of BBQ spice rub – or a mix of cumin and paprika
1 tsp dried chilli
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
