SPROUTS WITH CHESTNUTS

Ingredients

400g Brussels sprouts

1 tbsp vegetable oil, or turkey fat if you're

doing this at Christmas

70g-100g pancetta, you can use

smoked or unsmoked

100g cooked chestnuts, cut in half

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

MAKING CARBS COUNT

Method

Trim the sprouts as little as you possibly

can. Cut them in half.

Boil in salted water for 3 minutes until

tender. Drain then return them to the

empty pan; put it back on the heat and

sauté for 20-30 seconds to evaporate the

excess water. Turn off the heat.

In a large frying pan, add the vegetable oil

and heat to medium. Add the pancetta

and sauté for 1 minute to cook through.

Add the chestnuts, sauté for 1 minute.

Add the sprouts. Toss everything together,

season with salt and freshly ground black

pepper and serve.

sprouts

Nutrition of

chestnuts

There are 5g of carbs, 0.5g of fat and 2g

of protein, 25 calories as well as a big hit

of Vitamin C in 100g of cooked Brussels

sprouts. An average serving (9 sprouts)

provides half of your daily needs for folic

acid, and all the vitamin C you need per

day. Also great for vitamin K,sprouts have

63% of your RDA per 100g.

The carbohydrate content of chestnuts

compares with that of wheat and rice;

having twice as much starch as potato.

Per 100g steamed they have 130 cals,

30g of carbohydrates and almost no fat.

Chestnuts are the only 'nuts' that contain

vitamin C, containing 44% of your

Recommended Daily Amount (RDA).
