If you read our blog regularly, you’ll know we’re foodies. One of our great joys is matching our Two Tails Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough Pinot Gris and Marlborough Pinot Noir with delicious recipes to delight our friends and inspire our customers.
We also grow much of our own produce… Here’s Sarah tending our garden in warmer days…. As most home gardeners will know, one often ends up with an abundance of a certain crop at different times of the year, at the moment we’ve got lots of sprouts!
These wee cruciferous nutritional power houses are surprisingly high in protein for a green vegetable, and one serving meets your daily requirements for vitamin C and vitamin K; but let’s face it they’re an acquired taste, and many of you will be familiar with overcooked, soggy offerings from elderly relatives… Sarah’s not keen on these little beauties, so Russell has a recipe up his sleeve that can tempt even those who don’t like brussel sprouts to eat them….
Brussel sprouts for people who don’t like brussel sprouts!
- Prepared brussel sprouts
- Olive oil
- Good home-made breadcrumbs, (grind up some left over Ciabatta)
Heat the butter and olive oil in a pan. Slice the sprouts and fry them with a couple of cloves of finely sliced garlic. Add your breadcrumbs at the end, and fry for a little longer.
Serve these sprouts with a good steak and mashed potato, matched with Two Tails Marlborough Pinot Noir, or some pan fried white fish fillets and tiny oven roasted potatoes, matched with Two Tails Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
