Creamy Brussels Sprouts recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 40 minutes

In this yummy recipe, sprouts are cooked in a combination of double cream, butter, salt, pepper and a dash of lemon juice. The creaminess makes them extra-sweet and really brings out the nutty flavour of the sprouts.


  • 680g Brussels sprouts
  • 50g butter
  • 250ml double cream
  • Pinch each sea salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice


  1. Trim and quarter the sprouts. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and add the sprouts. Fry gently for five minutes.

  2. Pour in the cream, reduce to a simmer and cover. Reduce the heat to really low and simmer for 30-35 minutes or until the sprouts are tender.

  3. Stir in the lemon juice, simmer until the sauce coats the sprouts and season to taste.

For extra flavour, why not sprinkle some pine nuts over the sprouts to serve? Recipe serves 4-6.
