I’m so done with winter. After about 10cm of snow yesterday, I’ve just about reached my limit. Unfortunately, I can’t just escape to a sunny island and whether I like it or not, I’m going to have to ride out winter with the rest of this side of the world. I suppose if I have to look at the bright side of things, brussel sprouts can still be found at the supermarket. One of the best things about this season for me is the abundance of these little parcels of goodness. Not only are they very good for you, they’re supremely tasty (as I’ve discovered in recent years).
This dish is very fresh and bright making it perfect to eat in anticipation of Spring. The slow pan roasting of the brussel sprouts bring out their delicate sweetness. The pesto lightens things up. The peas add a little pop while the wilted rocket adds just a touch of pepperyness to round out the flavour. Topped with a poached egg, this dish is the perfect mixture of comforting and fresh.
