  • 2 handfuls Brussels sprouts leaves
  • 1 teaspoon duck fat (you can also use butter or olive oil)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • Handful chopped crispy bacon
  • Generous pinch Parmesan
FOR WARM BROCCOLI SALAD:

  • Chili flakes
  • 1 clove finely chopped garlic
  • Crushed almonds, for garnish

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For Chuck's Brussels Sprout Leaf Salad: Melt the duck fat in a pan on medium heat. 

Drop in the Brussels sprout leaves and lightly toss. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Add salt, pepper and pour in the chicken stock. Saute for 1 to 2 more minutes, tossing occasionally. Serve on a plate topped with chopped bacon and Parmesan as a warm salad or a side dish. 

For Warm Broccoli Salad: With a potato peeler shave the outer skin off the broccoli stalks and cut the tops (florets) off. Cut the broccoli stalks into thin sticks (like celery sticks) and break the tops into smaller bite-sized pieces. 

Put a pan on medium heat and coat the bottom with toasted sesame oil. When the pan is hot, add the broccoli (listen for the sizzle!). Lightly toss and add shaved ginger, a splash of soy sauce, a pinch of chili flakes and the garlic. Continue tossing until the broccoli is cooked but is still a little crisp. Garnish with a sprinkle of crushed almonds.
