Honey glazed Brussels sprouts & beetroot with blue cheese & walnuts

Who said Brussels sprouts need to be boring?

Perfectly warming for winter, this tasty recipe that combines Brussels sprouts with sweet beetroot, creamy blue cheese and crunchy walnuts.

It’s delicious any day of the year and the perfect side dish to brighten up a Sunday roast.

Serves: 4     Preparation time: 10 minutes     Cooking time: 15 minutes

You’ll need

  • 680g Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 60ml water
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 250g pack cooked beetroot, diced
  • 25g crumbled blue cheese
  • 25g walnuts, chopped


  1. In a large frying pan, heat the oil and butter to medium heat. Add the Brussels sprouts and allow them to cook cut-side down for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
  2. Add the garlic and the water and cook for 3 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally. Put a lid on the pan and cook for 5-8 minutes, or until all of the liquid is absorbed and Brussels sprouts are cooked to your liking.
  3. Add the honey and chopped beetroot and heat for 1-2 minutes until the beetroot is hot. Transfer the sautéed Brussels sprouts and beetroot to a serving dish and add the blue cheese crumbles and chopped walnuts.  Toss everything together and serve.

Nothing beats a serving of sprouts that's well-cooked (ie, not boiled to death) and served just as it is. Don't know about other people but I'm getting just a little bit sick now of recipes that pile up one "twist" ingredient after another until the original ingredient's flavour is lost. Might as well just sling your whole dinner into a bucket: soup, main course, dessert, and after-dinner mint. Whisk it up with a cement mixer, pour a fraction of it down your throat (how many people actually finish their dinner these days?) and then pine nostalgically for the days when we actually cared about what our food tastes like... Thanks for listening. I obviously needed a rant. Must be coming up to excessive-gluttony time again.
