Serves: 4 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 500g Brussels sprouts, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 good handful walnuts, pine nuts or sesame seeds
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • salt and pepper

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Heat wok over a high heat until very hot. Add the olive oil and swirl around once. Add the garlic and stir fry for a few seconds to scent the oil.
  2. Immediately tip in the sprouts before the garlic has a chance to burn and stir fry constantly for about 4 minutes until the sprouts are cooked. You are aiming for tenderness with a residual crunch.
  3. Stir in the nuts, lemon zest and juice. Stir fry for a final 30 seconds or so.
  4. Taste and season with salt and pepper if necessary.


I find that it will keep quite happily in a serving dish in a low oven or heated trolley until you are ready to serve.
