SOMETHING FOR NOTHING : Roasted Mini Brussels Sprouts with Soy Dip

Even if you're not a great fan of Brussels sprouts, there's something about roasting them that turns them into tasty little toasted gems! Try to buy small ones as they seem to work best and will roast in about 15-20 minutes.
Speared onto cocktail sticks and served with a soy sauce dip, these make wonderful nibbles with drinks and are 0pp!


Pop them raw into a bowl and toss them in a little low salt soy sauce mixed with a teaspoon of mirin (optional). 

Mirin is a Japanese ingredient- a cooking rice wine which just sweetens up the marinade. You can buy it in most supermarkets. If you use more than 2 teaspoons per portion, it will need to be propointed so please measure carefully.

Spray with a little Frylight oil, then roast on a baking tray at 200 degrees centigrade. The outside leaves should be browned and crispy and the inside cooked but still with a 'bite'.

Arrange on serving dishes with little pots of soy dipping sauce; low-salt soy sauce mixed with a teaspoon of mirin.
These are absolutely delicious and best served warm.



You could also try them with my Blue Cheese & Cranberry dip. (Click HERE for recipe). That's still a whole plate of nibbles for 1pp/under 100kcal!


Tasty toasty Christmas Nibbles!
